My role models are Ron Burgundy and Ron Swanson, so when Movember rolled around this year, I decided to commit to the cause. I tried growing out a 'stache last November, but four days in, I caved and shaved it. Not this year! It has been more than a week and I'm sporting the bare minimum of what could be considered a moustache. The thought of shaving it off does cross my mind after every glance in the mirror. I had never grown one out fully but surely it would be epic, wouldn't it?
Movember is upon us, and men all over the country are concentrated on growing out their whiskers. Tiny handlebar moustaches adorn mugs, pens, and a whole slew of paraphernalia. It’s cool, it’s hip, and it’s meant to draw attention to men’s testicular and prostate health. According to Canadian Cancer Society, there were approximately 26,500 cases of prostate cancer in 2012 and 4,000 deaths caused by it.
