Thankyou from the Bottom of my Mo! :{

I’ve always admired my Uncle. I think it was something about his ability to live life simply and well that resonated with me. A few years ago he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and sadly a few weeks ago, just after his 71st birthday, he passed away far too early .

So, this year, it’s time for Movember 2. The last Caterpillar landed on my face back in 2009, so I’m well overdue for another to arrive.

Movember is AWESOME! Not only do we all get to raise awareness of Prostate Cancer and Male Mental Health, pull some coin together for research and  we get to sport a Caterpillar AKA Porn Mo for a month. Yep, I drive Maree nuts with a scratchy face, and, on the plus side everyone has a laugh at my expense.

“The Movember Effect: Awareness & Education, Survivorship, Research
The funds raised in Australia support equally the two biggest health issues men face – prostate cancer and male mental health. The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue: the national depression initiative. Together, the three channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in line with our strategic goals, in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.”

So, peeps, throw a couple of coins at Movember, look after your blokes, keep them happy and keep them growing caterpillars on their faces for many years to come!

Read on to find out more about how Movember is kicking ass for Men’s Health.

Why am I so passionate about men’s health?

  • 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
  • This year 20,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed
  • 1 in 8 men will experience depression in their lifetime

I’m asking you to support my Movember efforts by making a donation by either:

  • Donating online at: http://mobro.co/paulkaan
  • Writing a cheque payable to ‘Movember,’ referencing my Registration ID: 6308405 and mailing it to: Movember, PO Box 60, East Melbourne, VIC, 8002

Funds raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others. Through the Movember Foundation and its men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue: the national depression and anxiety initiative, they are funding world class research, educational and support programs which would otherwise not be possible.

If you’d like to find out more about the type of work you’d be helping to fund by supporting Movember, take a look at the Programs We Fund section on the Movember website:http://au.movember.com/about/funding-overview/

Thank you in advance for supporting my efforts to change the face of men’s health. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
