Well, week two of Movember has come and gone. And my mo is slowly started to come in.
I also spoke to my friend Adam Weitner, a fellow first-time Mo-Bro, about his motivations for participating as well.
According to Weitner, he’s been debating doing it for a little while. “I was thinking about it, but I didn’t think I could grow (a moustache),” he says.
So, why did he decide to do it?
Late last year, his dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Fortunately, he underwent PSA testing, and the doctors were able to catch and treat the cancer early on.
Knowing someone that has been affected by prostate cancer, Weitner wanted to do what he can to raise awareness and support. “I felt it was my duty,” he says.” That’s what Movember is all about: spreading the word on getting tested.”
And shortly after hearing about it, Weitner considered participating. The only thing standing in his way was his uncertainty about growing a moustache. “It was actually my co-workers who convinced me to do it,” he recalls. After telling them about his apprehension, they suggested he “just go for it.”
“At the very least, I thought it would be entertaining and funny,” he says.

And if you’re growing a mo for Movember for the first time, what are your motivations?
