After October, which is dedicated to the fight against breast cancer, November is dedicated to the fight against prostate cancer.
WHAT IS BLUE NOVEMBER?
Blue November, more commonly known as Movember, is an annual international charity event launched in 2003.
The term Movember comes from the combination of Mo, mustache in Australian slang, and November. Indeed, on this occasion, men are invited to shave their faces completely at the beginning of the month and then grow a mustache for the next 30 days.
The primary aim is to raise public awareness and funds for research into male health issues, such as prostate and testicular cancer, as well as mental health issues, which are often a taboo for men.
