The Page 1 Power Stache is Fighting Cancer
Some of the gentlemen at Page 1 Solutions have formed their second annual team to participate in Movember. Movember is a month long event where men across the US, and the world, join together to grow mustaches and help raise awareness of the cancers that affect men, primarily prostate cancer. Here are just a few of the staggering statistics surrounding men's cancer and disease from the Men's Health section of the Movember site:
- 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
- 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime and there will be 240,890 new cases diagnosed with 33,720 men losing their lives.
- Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in American males between the ages of 15 and 34 and there will be 8,290 men diagnosed with the disease and of those, 350 will lose their lives.
- Smoking accounts for at least 30% of all cancer deaths and 87% of lung cancer deaths with an estimated 115,060 men to be diagnosed with lung cancer and of those, 85,600 men dying from lung cancer.
- While not as common, men can get breast cancer. There will be approximately 2,140 men diagnosed with invasive breast cancer and 450 men will die from this disease.
