Movember (a portmanteau of the Australian-English diminutive word for moustache, ‘mo’, and ‘November’) is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of various cancers, such as prostate cancer. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at Movember.com.…… Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths….
