MP Gordon Henderson has decided to take part in this year’s Movember Prostate Cancer campaign. And here’s the deal. . . the person who raises the largest amount in sponsorship will be allowed to shave off his moustache on 1st December 2013.
If you don’t know. . .
- One in eight men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
- A man will die from prostate cancer every hour.
- More than 10,000 men will die of the disease this year in the UK.
They are terrible statistics that few people know, which is why prostate cancer is called the ‘silent killer’.
Survival rates for prostate cancer have risen from a pitiful 31% to 81% as a result of research, earlier detection and new treatments. This didn’t just happen. Research charities such as Movember made it happen.
Gordon wants to help Movember, so for the next month he will be growing a moustache and I am looking for sponsors.
