Hubs and his Dad.

Hubs and his Dad.

The men in my life are the kind of guys that make sure the preventative maintenance is done on our vehicles at the proper mileage, but fight tooth and nail when it comes to taking care of their own health checkups. To be fair, an oil change when done properly shouldn’t cause anywhere near the discomfort of a prostate exam or involve taking off your pants, but they are both important.

I am betting you know a guy that thinks super glue is a perfectly acceptable alternative to stitches. But do you know a guy that will encourage other dudes to make the call to get his prostate checked out?

I am so glad that the Movember movement has been picked up by the men of the dairy industry.  And I am super proud of my Hubs and his Dad for making a very visible statement about a topic that isn’t easy to talk about.

For those of you who don’t know what Movember is, take a minute to read this post. For those of you who do know what Movember is, let’s get to what you want to see… The before and after photos!

Take some time and check out the Movember-Dairy page and if you can, throw a few bucks towards cancer research on Clem’s Mo’space. But most of all, help spread the word. We all know what the pink ribbon is for but our society doesn’t talk about Prostate cancer. It’s time to change that.

    P.S. Tell your dad he looks just fine without the beard! But I can imagine how odd it must feel to see himself in the mirror without it. A guy at my work just shaved his goatee and mustache after having it for ten years…takes some getting used to haha
