I realize this isn't CBG related. But it IS for a good cause.

I have decided to join a global movement that is bringing much needed attention to cancers that affect men. 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 to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LIVESTRONG).

What many people don’t know is that 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime and testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men aged 18-35. Facts like these have convinced me I should get involved.

To make a donation, you can either:

• Click this link http://us.movember.com/mospace/251646/ and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account , or
• Write a check payable to ‘Movember Foundation’, referencing my Registration Number 251646 and mailing it to: Movember Foundation, PO Box 2726, Venice, CA 90294-2726.

All donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

The Prostate Cancer Foundation will use the money raised by Movember to fund research to find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.

The Lance Armstrong Foundation will use the money raised by Movember to fund:

• The LIVESTRONG Young Adult Alliance program which has the goal of improving survival rates and quality of life for young adults with cancer between the ages of 15 and 40.
• Research initiatives to further understand the biology of adolescent and young adult cancers.

For more details on how the funds raised from previous campaigns have been used and the impact Movember is having please go to http://us.movemberfoundation.com/research-and-programs.

Thank you

Be sure to check all of the other parts too. My grandfather beat prostate cancer, only to discover it had spread to his stomach and colon. Less than six months after we discovered the stomach/colon cancer he died.

There seems to be limited publicity for male cancers, and stuff like this thread can only improve people's awareness.

For the record:

5½ years ago I 'donated' my right nut to testicular cancer ... I was at the upper end of the age group when I was diagnosed (40) and for those that haven't experience it, the words, "it's a tumour", are the scariest words that I've ever heard.
Following an op, a bout of radiotherapy, then 5 years of regular check-ups, x-rays and blood-tests, I finally got my all-clear in February this year.

Cancer aside, the second-worse part was the embarrassment of going to see my (female) doctor initially ... I'm sure this embarrassment plays a great part in the 'scary' statistics that we read.

If you catch it early enough, the success rate for TC treatment is extremely high, so to Hell with a few blushes, get to the docs a.s.a.p. if you find ANY type of lump on your happy-sacks.

I'm fully aware that we usually need no excuse or encouragement to have a crafty fiddle in our underwear but ...
If you're between 15 and 50, or you have a son in that age group, or you even know anyone of that age ...

I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer in the late 90's and had to have my Prostate removed. Thank God it hadn't spread to other parts of my body. Jacob Blackwood said:
