We won’t forget 2020 in a hurry. It’s been abig year and the world has changed dramatically. But some things remain the same: men are still dying too young. This year, with the funds raised by our epic Mo Bros and Mo Sisters around the globe, we’ve put our foot on the gas to change this.

From uniting the world’s brightest minds and funding ground-breaking research, to launching our very own programs designed with men in mind, here’s a look at our top project highlights of 2020.

A digital destination for men on a testicular cancer journey

In 2020, we continued to develop True North Testicular Cancer - our online tool with information, tools and resources for men who are facing a diagnosis of testicular cancer, along with their families, mates and loved ones. The tool is designed with men in mind. It provides information in a language that men understand and is delivered in a way that engages with them. Men in Australia are even able connect up with someone who has been through the cancer experience already and can help guide you through the ups and downs. We are looking forward toseeing this feature of the website available in Canada, the UK and the US in the coming months. For more, head over to


Our new parenting program for dads

Dads are a major part of many families but represent only 20% of people who participate in parenting programs. We wanted to see this change, so we created Family Man –a new parenting program built with dads in mind. By equipping men with the right parenting tools, especially in tough times, we’re aiming to help men live happier and healthier lives. Making "family” Dads’ new favourite F-word. Take a look at

At Movember, we love changing the game. This year, we have helped do that for men with advance prostate cancer.

The breakthrough is the culmination of a decade of research involving collaboration between scientific teams around the world and supported by funding from Movember. Tell me more.
