Some of the JOMAS team have been growing their Jomas-taches for ‘No-Shave-November / Movember’ this year.
They have done a great job cultivating their ‘tashes throughout November and have reminded us of the importance of spreading awareness for male issues such as Testicular and Prostate Cancer, Domestic Abuse and Male Suicide.
“No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness.” https://no-shave.org/ “The Movember Foundation is the leading global organisation committed to changing the face of men’s health…. We know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. We’re independent of government funding, so we can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. In 15 years we’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.
By 2030 we’ll reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.” https://uk.movember.com/ Here are some other helpful UK based contacts, should you need them for yourself or someone close to you, and other charities you might want to look into or donate to.
