Hope to Pass Along

Whether newly-diagnosed or further along in the journey of advanced disease, this new video from Movember gives hope to prostate cancer patients and families.

The folks at Movember never cease to amaze me. First they manage to turn the act of growing mustaches into funding  for medical research. Then they turn it into a global act of valor. Now they deliver a video every patient and caregiver needs to see:  The Journey to End Prostate Cancer.

This short video delivers a message of hope for patients and declares that prostate cancer researchers around the world are delivering on our shared promise to end suffering and death from prostate cancer. Just five to ten years ago, such a statement would have seemed impossible, perhaps even irresponsible. But with thanks to more than 3 million Mo Bros around the world since they started growing, and every researcher working within the global prostate cancer research enterprise, the statement represents a world within our reach.

Now that’s something worth thinking about. And it’s worth passing along to anyone who might need a word of encouragement.

  1. A great message! More than just patients and caregivers: the world at large would be a good place to start. BTW, great to just see images of men of all ages and races. Really well and thoughtfully done–hits a high emotional note without being maudlin. Congrats to all involved.
