My Motivation
Movember is about raising awareness of the diseases men don't feel comfortable discussing on their own, from "below the belt" cancers to mental health. I want to make it easier for us to get the help we need.

As another Movember draws to a close, I want to thank you all so much for your generous donations. As I write this I've raised $575, which is well over the $500 goal I set for myself. With your support, we will raise better awareness of the diseases that trouble men, and help to address them.

I think I'll keep the 'stache for a little while longer. I've gotten kind of attached to it. (:

Mental illness comes in many forms, from PTSD and anxiety to depression and schizophrenia. The insidious part about it is that, often, people don't really know what's wrong with them until it's advanced to a point where it interferes with the motivation to do anything about it.

Thanks so much to your generosity so far, the Movember Foundation can continue its work to understand mental health, and make it easier for others to understand -- and to talk about, which is even more important.

If diagnosed, testicular cancer can be treated to a good outcome about 95% of the time. But while it's easy to check yourself for it and easy to get a diagnosis, people don't realize that you need to start checking yourself from a relatively young age: the average age of patients diagnosed with testicular cancer is only 33 years old.

Thank you so much for your continued support of my fundraising drive. I'm hoping that furry faces like mine will remind men to check themselves more often, and catch any problems early.

Sir. This is very important. I mustache you a question.

Although sources disagree on precisely where it falls in the list, prostate cancer is definitely in the top three cancers that affect men. It's relatively easy to screen for, it's just not very pleasant. But with that said, I'm pretty sure it's more pleasant to get screened for, catch early, and have treated, than to not notice and suffer the consequences!

Thank you all so much for your support so far! Less than a week in and I'm already nearly halfway to my goal. Your funding will help with education, diagnosis, and treatment of prostate cancer.
