Movember Week 01

The ‘Mo: Week 1
I’ve decided to grow a style I’m terming ‘The Musketeer’–a moustache accompanied on the lower lip by what is alternately known as ‘the soul patch’, ‘the tickler’, or (more disturbingly) ‘the George Strombolopolous.’ In keeping with the French theme, I have therefore named my facial hair D’Artagnan.

Hello all!

I have decided to join a global movement that is bringing much needed attention to prostate cancer. I’m doing this by growing a Moustache this Movember, the month formerly known as November. My commitment is to grow a moustache all November and I am hoping that you will support my efforts by making a donation. The funds raised go directly to Prostate Cancer Canada.

What many people don’t know is that 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to afflict Canadian men with 25,500 diagnosed and 4,400 dying from the disease each year.

Facts like these have convinced me I should get involved…that and the fact that I think I’ll look awesome with a ‘stache 😉
