Facts First …

Celerity Movember Donate buttonProstate Cancer – In the UK, every 45 minutes 1 man dies from prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is the 2nd most common cancer in men, and rates are on the rise. When detected early, prostate cancer survival rates are better than 98%. Find it late, and those survival rates drop below 26%.

“Ask About PSA Testing From Your Doctor”

By 2030 Movember will have helped halve the number of men dying from prostate cancer

 

Celerity Movember Donate buttonTesticular cancer – strikes early – it’s the most common cancer in men under 40

In the UK testicular cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in young men.

The best thing is to do is give your testicles a bit of a feel each month or so, and if something doesn’t seem right, head to the doctor.

“So, Get To Know Your Nuts. It’s That Simple”

By 2030 Movember will have helped halve the number of men dying from testicular cancer

 

Celerity Movember Donate buttonMental Health and Suicide Prevention – every minute a man dies from suicide

Globally, the rate of suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men. 1 in 8 men experience a mental health problem. 75% of suicides are men.

To be a man of less anxiety, be a man of more words”

By 2030 Movember will help reduce male suicides by 25%

 

Now for the fun bit …

Celerity’s CEO Chris Roche, COO Craig Aston, Business Development Managers John Murdoch, Andy Webb, Paul Lyons, Technical Consultant David King and last, but not least, Inside Sales Executive James Grant are all taking part in this year’s Movember Appeal – look out for regular updates when they will all begin to look “slightly dishevelled” and hot competition will ensue as they vie for the ‘top tache award’.
