Movember!

November 6, 2012 at 9:08 pm

Hi,

It’s Movember and time to make a difference.

Men’s health is a cause I am passionate about but in order to make a difference I need your help. My commitment is to grow a moustache for the month of November and in doing so, raise vital awareness and funds for prostate cancer and male mental health.

I am asking you to help support my personal journey by making a donation. The size of which isn’t important, every little bit helps Movember to continue funding its world class programs.  If you want to know more about what you’ll be helping to fund, you can visit http://ca.movember.com/about/funding-overview/.

To highlight the importance of what I am doing, take a look at these statistics:
•    1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
•    This year 26,500 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed
•    1 in 5 men will experience a mental illness this year

If you’d like to help change these statistics, please donate to me here: http://mobro.co/PatrickLatter

I will post some photos of my moustache half through November and again at the end. For now here is photo of my moustache from last year.

If you’re interested, here’s a video that will help you better understand the type of programs you’ll be helping to fund by making a donation. For wider details, take a look at the Programs We Fund section on the Movember website: http://ca.movember.com/about/funding-overview/

Thank you in advance for supporting my efforts to change the face of men’s health. :)
