The state of men’s health is in crisis and it is not being discussed. We can’t afford to stay silent and ignore the crisis facing our fathers, partners, brothers and friends.
Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years. Testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50. Three quarters of suicides are men. Poor mental health leads to half a million men taking their own life every year. That’s one man every minute.
We are the Movember Foundation – the only global charity focused solely on men’s health. We want men to take action to live happier, healthier, longer lives. We do this by investing in these critical areas: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. By 2030, our aim is to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.
To achieve this goal, we ask Mo Bros and Mo Sisters around the US to join us in our annual Movember movement to start conversations and change the face of men’s health. From 30 moustaches in 2003 when Movember started, to 5 million moustaches today, Movember inspires action and support.
Movember has produced the enclosed new :15, :30 and :60 “Whatever You Grow Will Save A Bro” PSAs to encourage your audience to Grow a moustache this Movember to stop men from dying too young. We kindly request that you air these PSAs as soon as and as often as possible to support our mission to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.
