During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.
The funds raised in Canada support men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.
The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by Movember and the men’s health partner, Prostate Cancer Canada. Together, these two channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in line with their goals.
Prostate Cancer Canada’s vision for Research and Support Services is to establish programs to support research that will have the greatest potential to improve prostate cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment and to better manage survivorship.
To that end, PCC recently developed a new national research strategy geared to accelerate the world’s most promising research and enable game-changing projects that will lead to improved patient care and treatments. This strategy also includes a comprehensive survivorship program to help support patients throughout their journey with prostate cancer.
