Author to donate to MOvember to benefit Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG

Charlie Winger, author of the new memoir Two Shadows - The inspirational story of one man's triumph over adversity announces that he will donate $5 per book sale to MOvember, a global, non-profit men's health initiative.
 
Nov. 18, 2010 - PRLog -- Mountaineer, guidebook author, and prostate cancer survivor Charlie Winger announced on November 18, 2010 that he will make a donation to MOvember, a fundraising campaign raising awareness and funds for the number one cancer affecting men – prostate cancer. The donation will be based on sales of Winger’s autobiography, Two Shadows - The inspirational story of one man's triumph over adversity.

Winger was diagnosed with prostate cancer in May 2009, and subsequently underwent surgery to remove his prostate. All indications are that he is now cancer-free. He has been impressed with all the awareness campaigns and support for women and men diagnosed with breast cancer, and wanted to find a way to reach out to men with prostate cancer as well as to support organizations fighting this disease which will kill 32,000 men this year. MOvember USA uses the moustache (called a “mo” for short) as the “ribbon for men’s health,” and is partnering with the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG to address this health issue.

From now through November 30, 2010, Winger will donate $5.00 per paperback copy sold and $1.00 per Kindle copy sold of his latest book to MOvember. Two Shadows is available in paperback or e-book (Kindle) format from Amazon.com and other online booksellers. Winger’s wife, Diane, has also set up an individual donation page on the MOvember website, http://us.movember.com/mospace/1281804/, where direct donations to MOvember can be entered.
