Do Mo! Grow a Moustache And Help Fight Cancer

Posted on November 11, 2013

The law firm of Farah & Farah in Jacksonville is proud to be working with Movember Jax, the Jacksonville chapter of the worldwide charity the Movember Foundation.

The Movember Foundation is working to “change the face” of men’s health by urging men to grow moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness and funds to fight prostate and testicular cancer.

Since 2009, Movember Jax has raised over $100,000 in support of LIVESTRONG and the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

Men who register with become Mo Bros and are encouraged to grow moustaches during the month of November. Women can also support the men by becoming Mo Sistas. The idea is to seek out sponsorship and funds to help the Movember Foundation in its men’s health awareness and cancer prevention efforts.

Here are some facts about prostate and testicular cancer:

  • 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetimes.
  • It is estimated that over 238,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year.
    More than 29,000 will die.
  • The most common cancer diagnosed in men between 15 and 35 is testicular cancer.

Farah & Farah is honored to be a part of the Mo Generation, and to reinforce our commitment to men’s health issues, we will donate $1 to Movember Jax for every “like” on our Facebook page throughout the month of November.
