Movember is here! I urge you to join our team and raise money for helping men fight prostate cancer. We have, once again, organized a University of Colorado Cancer Center Team. The MOVEMBER Foundation raises money to fund projects related to men’s health – specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health. Since 2003, this grass roots project has gathered 5 million participants across 21 countries raising more than $710 million and funding over 1,200 projects. We, The University of Colorado Cancer Center, are actively involved in the Prostate Cancer projects which include translational research, clinical registries, and the Global True NTH program. True NTH is aimed at catalyzing innovative health outcomes programs, through supportive care services, in an effort to improve the lived experience of men with prostate cancer, as well as their partners and caregivers.

I cannot emphasize strongly enough the difference Movember has made in the fight against prostate cancer. Through multiple initiatives they are doing for this disease what Susan G Koman for the Cure has done for breast cancer research. I always used to say, “In breast cancer, they RACE for the cure, while in prostate cancer we CRAWL for the cure.” No longer! This an initiative by men and for men, although just as we have seen the NFL football players sporting pink shoelaces, there are a lot of women who support Movember as “Mo Sisters” as well.
If you don’t want to join the team and “grow your own”, you can sponsor my feeble attempt at a moustache by clicking HERE. Many thanks for your consideration.
