A self portrait for Movember (please read the description)

Well the first proper self portrait I've ever done and all for the spirit of Movember.

 

If you don't know what Movember is;

 

Movember, the month formerly known as November, now dedicated to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men’s health; specifically prostate and testicular cancer. I’m donating my top lip to the cause for 30 days in an effort to help change the face of men’s health. My Mo will spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for cancer’s affecting men.

 

Why am I concerned about men’s health?

*1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime

*This year 37,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed

*1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime

*26% of men are less likely to go the doctor compared to women

 

I invite you to join me by registering to grow (might me a bit late if you haven't started!) or by donating to my support of the Mo
