Help Us Kick #Cancer in the Prostate! #Movember
More often than not, if you get into a fight, there is an expectation that both parties will fight fairly. This is strangely true in even the most extreme circumstances - like bar fights. Anyone who kicks his opponent in the scrotum during a fight would be seriously looked down upon. Cancer would be someone who would kick his opponent in the scrotum.
In its fight against the human race, cancer doesn't fight fairly. It takes extreme medical practices to even have a chance to survive.
It does not fight with a predictable style. There is no formula for avoiding or beating cancer that is 100% effective.
Anyone can get it. It makes no exception for age, race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.
It is sneaky. It often doesn't make its presence known until it's too late.
It is aggressive and doesn't respect boundaries. It doesn't always stay confined in one location.
The only way that we can fight cancer is to throw so much money into research and health initiatives like early screening that it doesn't stand a chance. We need to kick cancer in the prostate.
We need to attack it as aggressively as it seems to be attacking us. We need to raise money and awareness at an unprecedented level.
I am part of a group of men that has taken on that very challenge. We are throwing caution to the wind. We are ignoring the wishes of our spouses. We are growing mustaches to raise awareness for men's health initiatives and prostate cancer research. You can help us kick cancer in the prostate.
First, go to see your doctor at least once a year for a health screening to check for cancer. Learn what to look for so you can detect any early warning signs.
Second, donate to our Movember team to raise awareness for men's health initiatives and prostate cancer research. Click on the giant mustache on top of the sidebar on the right.
Third, tell someone you love to get their annual screening.
