Movember at ISH
Posted 18/10/2018 14:45

During the month of November, the staff at ISH will be raising money and awareness for the Movember Charity. This incredible charity that aims to make a difference for men's health – in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. 

Every November the Movember charity aims to make a difference for men's health raising money and awareness in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. We did Movember two years ago raising €1,127 for this fantastic cause.

The Stats
When Prostate cancer is detected early, prostate cancer survival rates are better than 98%. Find it late, and those survival rates drop below 26%.

Testicular cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in young European men.
 

Men’s Mental Health 
According to Movember, globally 3 out of 4 suicides are men and that each year, more than 500,000 men die by suicide around the world.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-old men globally.

This year ISH would like it to become bigger and better raising more money and awareness than in previous years.
