Ok, so let's be honest no man likes talking about cancer, especially when it's "cancer of the downstairs", but the truth is we've got to. Cancer will affect all of us in one way or the other and Movember is all about raising awareness and funds for men's health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

A bit like us, the nice people at Movember don't want to preach at you, they want to make you aware of what you need to look for and how you can get help, but we all want to do it in a way that is fun. That's why growing a Mo for Movember is a good idea. You'll also look darned sexy too (that's right we're making you hotter). Think about some of the sexiest men in history they've all had facial furniture, Des Lynam, Merv Hughes and Magnum PI are just two examples. We also want Mo Sistas to support their men and encourage them to talk about their health.

Last year, Movember had its most successful year to date with over 855,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas across the globe raising a phenomenal 79.3 million. The hairy movement will continue to grow in 2012, as 21 countries across five continents unite to have an everlasting impact on the face of men's health.

We're going to be talking about Movember a lot. We hope you understand why. If you're squeamish, we'll try not to go into too much detail, but we need you to promise to think about it, at least once. We also want you to tell us how you're getting involved. You can tell us your stories here and you can donate money by clicking on the button to the right.
