MOVEMBER!!!!

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the United Staes, Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer. On Movember 1st, guys start with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts. Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words, they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Part├ęs held around the world by Movember, for Movember.

We are excited to support Movember this year. Several friends and neighbours from our community and church are participating.

The local support is being headed up by my stupendously awesome husband Mike. 

A paypal account has been set up to help out my brother in law Russell's dad, Dennis Jensen, who is battling cancer. Denis is an awesome man with so much to give and contribute.  He was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year and will begin chemotherapy within the next few months.  Denis has worked hard his entire life to support his family and members of his community.  He has spent countless hours serving his friends and neighbours volunteering his time to his local church and we are excited to give something back to him during this time of trial. 

The PayPal account has been set up in Mike Hurren's name and all donations will be donated directly to Denis Jensen.
