You're not a whore if it's for charity


I'm not sure how many of you have heard of the newest cancer awareness fad...but if you haven't, I'll let you know that I'm totally in to it.  For several years we have been raising breast cancer awareness left and right...don't get me wrong, I totally support it and have raised my fair share of money for the cause.  Boobs feed babies.  But with the male stigma of doctors and doctor's offices, I think it is fabulous men are finally jumping on the band wagon and promoting cancer awareness.

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men.  It may also be a normal pathologic process of aging and it's estimated that 80% of men have prostate cancer at death.  Even so, prostate cancer should not be overlooked because there is always a chance of metastasis (when the cancer spreads to other organs and lymph nodes in the body).  In 2010, it is estimated that there will be almost 218,000 new cases of prostate cancer and over 32,000 deaths.

Several friends of mine in Kansas City are standing up to prostate cancer and raising awareness through Movember (the month formally known as November).  Check out some of their growths here...

May or may not be real...you decide...
Either way it's still sick (as in totally hot)

Not only are these guys Mo'Bros, but they're also raising money to support Prostate Cancer Awareness.  Check out their Team Page and donate to their cause.  So far they've raised over $2,000 as a team.  Way to go guys!  You definitely deserve to celebrate November 18 (see below).

Another reason Movember is so awesome...November 18 has been declared, "Have sex with a guy with a mustache day" in support of the Movember movement.  Check it out if you don't believe me.  And as the article says..."you're not a whore if it's for charity."

Ladies...don't worry...if you don't have a mustached male (much like myself) you can still support the cause by being a Mo'Sista.  Not only can you donate, but you can also support the men by using Picknik and adding a mustache to your profile pic.
