Movember (the month formerly known as November)

Support my good friend Gus as he grows a Moustache for the month of Movember (the month formerly known as November.) Gus is doing this to help in the fight so please support his efforts.
Here is an email from Gus:

Hi All,
During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'm growing a Moustache. That's right I'm bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about tackling men's health issues and being proactive in the fight against prostate cancer.

To donate to my Mo you can either: Click this link and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account, or Write a check payable to the ‘Prostate Cancer Foundation', referencing my Registration Number 1890721 and mailing it to:

Prostate Cancer Foundation
Attn: Movember
1250 Fourth St
Santa Monica, CA, 90401

All donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.The money raised by Movember is donated directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation which will use the funds for high-impact research to find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.

Did you know:
  • Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in the US with one in six American men developing the disease and more than 28,000 men dying of the disease every year.
  • African American men and those with a family history of prostate cancer are twice as likely to develop the disease and should have regular annual testing starting at 45.
  • All other men should commence testing at 50.
  • Prostate cancer is 90% curable if detected and treated early.
