So we’ve been celebrating Movember here at WACH FOX and the boys have grown some pretty sweet ‘staches. The whole idea is to create a dialogue about Prostate Cancer and to get men talking about their health. Everything is pink, pink, pink in October and we’re telling women to get tested for breast cancer, but 1 in 6 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. The annual death rate is almost 33,000 men, pretty ridiculous when you hear the doctors say that many of those are preventable!
Dr. Edmunds from Capitol Urology has been a great resource, he even offered up free Prostate Cancer screenings for the event. Pretty awesome. Dr. Edmunds has also been visiting the set each Tuesday to talk about Men’s Health, you can catch him on 11/22 and 11/29 at 730am on Good Day.
If you or your husband, father, brother, or friend are nearing 40 or over, you should really give them a call. On Tuesday 11/22 from 1-4p they will do free exams and blood tests. The number is 251-6602.
Also, big props to POUT on Devine, who stepped up in a big way to help us promote Movember. They donated almost $400 worth of The Art of Shaving gifts to help us get people excited about Movember. You can still win one of the gifts by going here: https://www.facebook.com/wachfox?v=app_158086484245654&app_data=%26wlbb%3D1

And now, check out some of the sweet ‘staches from Movember!
Aaron wasn’t technically competing in any of our Movember festivities, but he does arguably have the best mustache in town.
Tyron Mcfarlan, one of our Movember facebook contestants.
Henry Rothenberg, the WACH FOX weatherman grew chops!
Marisa Fierle and Christen T submitted their pic from the Free Times party!
Thanks to everyone who participated, it’s been a whole lot of fun and we hope that we are leaving the men in our lives a little more educated about their health now that Movember is winding down.
