Innisfil Woman Joins Movember Team to Raise Awareness of Men’s Health Issues
An Innisfil woman has joined the local “Armour Lip Charmours” Movember team in an effort to increase awareness and raise funds for prostate cancer research.
The Movember campaign is an annual event where men across the world grow moustaches while raising funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer. Originally started in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has ‘grown’ to epic proportions. In 2011, over 854,000 men around the world participated, raising $125.7 million CAD.
“I think that everyone should be educated about this horrible disease”, states McNamara, an employee of Busch Systems in Barrie. “A member of my family is living with prostate cancer and it’s tough on him and the whole family. Friends and family need to understand that it is something that can be discussed and should be discussed”.
McNamara is not the first unique member of the “Armour Lip Charmours” Movember team. 8-year old Cameron Pepper from Orillia is also sporting a pencilled moustache throughout “Movember”
“I believe women can help too”, states McNamara. “The more people we have raising funds, the better things will be for those afflicted with prostate cancer as well as their loved ones”.
