2013 movember

This year, during the month of November, Govan Brown is once again joining a month-long, nationwide initative to do their part in the fight against prostate cancer.  Get ready to see Govan Brown employees sporting moustaches (mo's) of all shapes and sizes.  "Movember's vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men's health.  During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world.  Through the power of the moustache, vital funds and awareness are raised to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental  health challenges."  (Movember.com)

 

At Govan Brown, we make it a priority to be involved in  our community and take great pride in supporting important causes such as disease awareness.  We are thrilled to be taking part in such a worthy cause, and can't wait to get these mo's started in the fight against prostate cancer.
What is Prostate Cancer?

According to Prostate Cancer Canada, "Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to affect Canadian men.  One in seven men will be diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime.  Prostate cancer is a disease where some prostate cells have lost normal control of growth and division.  They

 

no longer function as healthy cells. Prostate  cancer can be slow-growing and some men who develop prostate cancer may live many years without ever having the cancer detected.  It is important to get screened regularly so that if you do develop prostate cancer, the appropriate action can be taken.  A significant proportion of prostate cancers, if untreated, may have serious consequences."
