Prostate cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed form of cancer. One in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime; nearly 230,000 men will be diagnosed in America this year alone.
Thankfully, the Movember Foundation is there for those men and their partners, raising awareness and funding programs focusing on prostate cancer as well as testicular cancer. The group, which is dedicated to creating positive change for men’s health, is one of the world’s largest non-government funders of prostate cancer research.
Says Adam Garone, CEO and Co-Founder of Movember, “Movember works together with our Men’s Health Partners globally to ensure men living with prostate cancer have the care and treatment they need to be physically and mentally well. We provide support for men, their partners, caregivers and families on this journey through a range of funded programs.”
EI’s eCommerce and Marketing Strategist, Steven Kim, chose the Movember Foundation to receive EI’s charitable contribution in the month of November. Steven also took the Movember pledge, to grow a moustache and exercise every day in November.
