My son Kelly and his girlfriend Leksy sporting their ‘staches.
It’s No Shave November or Movember, a month of growing facial hair to bring awareness to prostate cancer. Want to join me in donning a ‘stache and doing a little blog hop? While having some fun, we can get the word out about a disease that can be hard for a lot of men to talk about.
This cancer is very common among men and very treatable. According to the American Cancer Society, there are over 2 million survivors. I have a couple of friends that are being treated for it right now. Like breast cancer, it is all about early detection.
Post a picture rockin’ your No Shave November mustache, beard, or full-on facial fur on your blog and paste the link back here in this comment section. I will add it to the bottom of this post.
I will keep a photo on the side of my blog to click on. You can check back and click to see who’s added their ‘staches to the list!
Remember to include a link to a donation site.
Donations can be made to No Shave November at Cancer.org.
I can’t wait to see your photos!
Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter. The more facial hair photos, the better. It will be a WILD month!
Have you noticed that men are getting harrier this month?
Here are some fabulous ‘stache posts to check out!
We need some women to balance the list out!

Well, I donated once…2 yrs. ago to some guys on a team for the Canadian charity on prostate cancer.
My 84 yr. father is dying of prostate cancer. He’s had it for the past 4 years. At this time, he is on a trial drug which only controls spread, doesn’t cure it. He is not on chemo yet…which surely will weaken him a lot.
A sister-physician explained that prostate cancer can affect 80% of men: but it’s just that for some men they get it much later in life and end up dying sooner of other diseases.
My father on the other hand, has no respiratory, cardio problems…ever. His posture is affected now by age..hunched over.
By the way, best of luck with your masectomy recovery, etc.
