Men’s Health Awareness

It is November! Or should I say “Movember?” That time of the year when guys let loose and grow a moustache, not only to look cool and keep their upper lip warm, but to raise men’s health awareness! That’s right. Unlike women, who tend to openly talk about their health (and most definitely many other things) all the time, men are a little more reluctant to discuss health issues they face either with their family or doctor.

That’s why Movember came about, a cool global men’s health charity that encourages men to grow and women to support the Mo (moustache) during the month of November. Through the power of the moustache, awareness and funds are raised for men’s health to combat prostate and testicular cancer.

 One of the reasons why I’m personally very fond of Movember is because I have many important men in my life. I could count a whole list of men that have changed my life, starting with my wonderful dad, my husband, brother, best friend, male teacher, godson and grandfather. I’m sure I speak for all ladies on this one. We all have a special guy in our lives that we love and we want to see healthy and radiant.

My intention with this post is to raise awareness and encourage men to become more actively involved in their own health. Also, I want to invite “Mo-sistas” to stand for change and lead by example in other ways, helping our men to break down barriers and talk about their health. We ladies are key to encourage Mo-bros to share their own health journeys with each other and their health care professionals.

Mo-bro, have you grown your ‘stache yet? If so, what kind of health conversations have you started?
