Bianca: I'm Bianca with Watch Mojo and today we're going to teach you all about Movember.
So I am here with Mark and Michael, two official Mo bros, who are going to get a clean shave tonight, is that correct?
Mark: That's right.
Michael: That is correct. That's coming off.
Bianca: Excellent. So what can you two—tell me about Movember?
Michael: Movember actually started back in 2003 in Australia which is Mo for the mustache and November so the month of November, so just a couple of guys that started doing this mustache macho thing to raise awareness for prostate cancer. What started on with a few guys really blossomed into a whole bunch of guys in Australia then it jumped from country to country
Bianca: Does this pitch you guys personally?
Michael: My dad had prostate cancer so when I heard that we we're going to do this I really jumped into it and you know this is a cause that is really close to everyone’s heart and really surprising but it was really good to do.
Mark: They say one in seven men should be diagnosed with prostate cancer so when we've been asking around a lot of people seemed to be affected somehow. All people know people and their family or friends have been affected by it so this is just a fun way to try to raise awareness and raise some funds.
Bianca: Do you think that there’s maybe not enough emphasis placed on the importance of getting regular check ups and males in particular taking close attention to their health?
Mark: There’s a relative and 95% cure rates for prostate cancer if it's diagnosed early enough, so I think that's one of the key things to try to raise awareness as much as possible.
Bianca: If women want to get involved and help somehow, obviously they can't grow mustache but how can they help out?
Michael: Actually the most sisters that we call them, their aim and goal is to recruit the mo brothers if you will. It's not only about the mustache; it's to get people to actually talk about it. The sisters and the brothers are as important.
Bianca: Have you guys had any positive effects on mustaches or you kind of itching literally in figure simply to get rid of them.
Michael: I hit all the mirrors in my house so I don't think that. The positive was gone.
Bianca: Enjoy the nice clean feeling like a baby 's bum foot.
