It’s almost November. Or Movember as some call it. Typically a month that has given trendy men everywhere an excuse to not shave. I’ve participated in No Shave November before and grew out a scraggly beard. But this year is different.
What the heck is Movember?
As an official global charity, Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health. During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches on men’s faces around the world. Through the power of the Mo, vital funds and awareness are raised to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.
This year it hits too close to home. My brother-in-law (Kelsey’s younger brother) is battling testicular cancer. He is in the midst of a nine-week intense chemo session, and hearing from him nearly daily about what he is going through has been both sad and inspiring.
Sad to see him have to go through this as a 26-year-old. Inspiring to see his courage as he goes through it all with a great attitude. I’m so proud of him.
