As a Mo Sista


A Mo Sista is a woman who loves a moustache and is committed to raising awareness and funds for men’s health. Movember wouldn’t be where it is today without the love, support and inspiration of the Mo Sistahood.

There are many ways you can get involved in Movember as a Mo Sista. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Sign up

Make it official by signing up then use your Mo Space (your personal Movember page), to raise funds for men’s health.

Create or Join a Team

Movember is no lonely business, so get your friends and family involved by joining or creating a Movember Team.

Raise awareness

Spread the word of men’s health by sharing your Movember story with friends and family.

Raise Funds

Raise funds for Movember’s prostate and testicular cancer programmes by holding an event in your office or hosting a Movember party.

Spread the Mo love

A wink, a smile or a small word of encouragement can make all the difference to a Mo Bro and his moustache.

Celebrate

Look back at your efforts with pride and celebrate with fellow Mo Bros and Sistas at one of Movember’s legendary Gala Partés or host your own.


MO-SPIRATION

We’ve asked Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to share their Movember secrets with us. Here are some of our favourites.


MO SISTA ROSA GLOVER

In August 2012, Rosa’s father passed away after losing his battle with prostate cancer. Rosa used her dad’s strength, courage and selflessness is his last few months as her inspiration when she embarked upon her first Mo Sista journey.

Rosa hatched a simple yet innovative plan to entice donations by vowing to get a moustache tattooed on her finger if she got 1000 people to donate £10 each. As a Mo Sista, Rosa spoke up: “Tell your story to your friends, tell them why you're passionate, and tell them why they should care. Don't be afraid to lead”. Rosa encourages daughters, mums and Mo Sistas worldwide to talk to the men in their life and openly discuss their health together.


MO SISTA DR VALÉRIE LAPIERRE

Valérie is the head of the cell therapy centre at Gustave Roussy Cancer Campus hospital in Villejuif, France and was also France’s highest fundraising Mo Sista in 2013. Involved with the treatment of men suffering from prostate and testicular cancer, Valérie has seen first-hand the impact of these diseases and knows just how important research is in this area.

To aid her Movember efforts in 2013, Valérie engaged her personal network of friends and family to spread awareness and ask for donations. Her advice for other Mo Sistas out there? Be determined, confident and supportive. A nod or a smile to a fellow Mo Sista or Mo Bro goes a long way.
