Says who? What does that mean? What’s the Movember Foundation? Take two minutes and learn more.
A major research study, conducted by Dr. Clare Turnball and her team at the Institute of Cancer Research in London, has uncovered several new genetic mutations that could drive the development of testicular cancers in men – and also, very critically, it has identified a gene which may contribute to some tumours becoming resistant to current treatments. This will help lead to new options for men whose testicular cancer progresses in spite of the best available treatments.
This discovery was made possible thanks to your Mo, passion and support. Find out more about how the Movember Foundation is changing the face of testicular cancer research: http://bit.ly/MovFindings
"We know that men tend to compare themselves against a masculine ideal which values power, strength, control and invincibility. This is something that is played out across multiple touch points in a man’s life..Throughout their lives, society teaches our boys that they need to act tough, show strength and, effectively, be invincible.
Unfortunately, the popular notion of what it is to be a man today can have a devastating effect on an individual’s mental health and well-being."
Our recent prostate cancer breakthrough is truly changing the course of prostate cancer and on #WorldCancerDay we’d like to thank every one of you involved in making #Movember funded research programs like this happen: http://bit.ly/MovBreakthroughs
The Movember Foundation is the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health
The Movember community has raised over $550 million to date and funded over 800 programs in 21 countries. This work is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.
The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow moustaches during Movember (formerly known as November), to spark conversation and raise vital funds for its men’s health programs. To date, 4 million moustaches have been grown worldwide, but we won't stop growing as long as serious men’s health issues exist.
