Mo Bro Check up

Movember Tip #1

Get an annual check up and know your family history! 

 

From Movember.com: Find a doctor and make an appointment for a health check up. Getting annual physicals significantly increases your chances for early detection of illness and disease.

Also, knowing your family history can help you reduce your risk developing many health problems, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. {Besides, it’s a good reason to call and catch up with the family!}

 


 

Health Checks: So what should you talk to your doctor about? Depends on your age.

It’s Movember!

Mustache

For thirty days, I will be a walking billboard to help change the face of men’s health. As such, I will be growing facial hair on my upper lip to raise awareness for prostate cancer and other male related cancer and health initiatives. It’s a small act to support a great cause. I will not actively solicit donations but if you would like to make a financial contribution to my plight, please do! The funds go to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, LiveStrong, and the Movember Foundation. What I _would_ like is for you to take a look at the issues surrounding men’s health.
