November has become known as "Movember" in many countries around the world. The Movember Foundation is the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health. To date the Movember community has raised $574 million and funded over 800 programs in 21 countries. This work is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health issues.
The Movember Foundation seeks to improve men's health in several ways, including reduced mortality from prostate, testicular cancer and men’s suicide, promoting mental health education and help initiatives for men and boys, and improved lifestyle for those men currently living with cancer. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian men (excluding non-melanoma skin cancers). It is the 3rd leading cause of death from cancer in men in Canada.
In Canada, Movember funding has raised almost $10.5 million to date. Every dollar raised makes a difference. Bloomex is proud to support this initiative by donating a portion of each sale in their new Movember Collection directly to the Movember Foundation. Bloomex hopes that with public support it can raise a significant donation for this important men's health campaign.
