Have you ever heard someone refer to the month of November as Movember? No, they weren’t mumbling, they were referring to a global campaign that raises awareness for men’s health including prostate and testicular cancer. You’ve probably seen a friend, brother, father or spouse sporting a fancy facial hair-do as of late. While it may be a simple case of winter beard, it is more likely that their lack of shave is in support of Movember.
