Mo’ ways to help this month

Well, it’s that time of year again when brave men sacrifice their faces in the name of men’s health.

Well, it’s that time of year again when brave men sacrifice their faces in the name of men’s health.

Throughout the month of November, men across the country and other parts of the world will be growing moustaches to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer.

“It is a very treatable form of cancer when detected early, but guys are stubborn,” said Sean Gibson, chair of Movember Calgary.

Gibson and his friends will be ditching their razors for the next 30 days.

Along with thousands of other men in Calgary, these three men are hoping to turn a few heads and have people question what the moustaches are all about.

“A lot people don’t understand the actual cause behind it,” said Travis Goodbrand, EMT.

Goodbrand will be teaming up with a group of EMS personnel for the cause and he stresses the importance of awareness.

“There is always the first awkward 10 days where nobody is cool,” said Goodbrand.

And for the ladies out there who may not be very excited about their men’s nose neighbour hanging around for the next month, Gibson is asking them to cut the men some slack.

“Just that moral support and backup is nice to have,” said Gibson.
