Love the Stache!

Wed Nov 28, 2012, 6:14 PM


Hi everyone :)

Movember is quickly coming to a close and the shave-off events are eagerly awaited by our Mo'Bros who have suffered through all sorts of mo-mishaps over the last 28 days.  For those of you that have participated, I thank you and ask you to make the last two days really count and reach out to your friends and families for those last minute donations.  

For the rest of you, I am making this final push on behalf of all of the deviantART Sta.sh teams to request that you reach into your pockets and make a donation, regardless of how big or small, to the Movember effort.  I realize how hard this may be considering you're likely broke after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but should you find a dollar or two - we would greatly appreciate your donation :please:

The amount isn’t important, every little bit helps Movember continue its funding of world-class programs.  If you want to know more about what you’ll be helping to fund, you can visit this link

Please note that donations can be made by credit card and paypal and a tax receipt will be issued! :heart:

We have four teams that you can donate to:

:iconstacheplz: The DeviantART Sta.sh U.S. Team 

:iconstacheplz: The DeviantART Sta.sh Canadian Team

:iconstacheplz: The DeviantART Sta.sh Australia Team 

:iconstacheplz: The DeviantART Sta.sh Mexico team  


The reasons for the poor state of men’s health in the US and around the world are numerous and complex, primarily due to a lack of awareness of the health issues men face. This can largely be attributed to the reluctance of men to openly discussing the subject due to longstanding traditions, coupled with an ‘it’ll be alright’ attitude. Men are less likely to schedule doctor appointments when they feel ill or for an annual physical, thereby denying themselves the chance of early detection and effective treatment of common diseases.   

Studies show that many men don’t get regular health checks for the following reasons:

  • Fear it will lead to a hospital visit
  • Embarrassed to discuss their health issues
  • Find it too hard to see a doctor because they just can’t fit it into their schedule
  • Just can’t be bothered making an appointment


To this end; Women, friends, family - let's join forces to enable the men in our life to get to the doctor and to talk about the uncomfortable topics.  I encourage everyone to nag their husbands, their boyfriends, fathers, brothers, and sons because you care.  You care enough to bother.


To highlight the importance of what I am doing, take a look at these statistics:

•    1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime

•    This year 242,000 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed

•    This year 8,290 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer


To inspire you, here are some progress shots of gimp's Mo!
