It's that time of year again - Movember - and you can see it on some people's faces. If you look around at your male friends and coworkers today, you may notice a distinct lack of facial hair. Chances are if someone's suddenly barefaced, it's because they're gearing up to grow a moustache for a good cause.
If you're not familiar with the Movember movement, it's an annual month-long fundraiser to raise money for men's health, specifically prostate cancer. The event was started back in 1999 by a group of guys in Adelaide, Australia. With the establishment of the Movember Foundation in 2004, it started to (ahem) sprout across the world.
So where does the money go? Basically, wherever it's needed to help defeat prostate cancer. Prostate Cancer Canada receives funding each year from the Movember Foundation to support their research. The Prostate Health Clinic at the new Edmonton Clinic was granted money last year to help them develop state-of-the-art robotic surgery systems. Funds have also gone to Dr. Anthony Joshua, who is working on creating drugs that prevent cancer cells from multiplying.
