No Shave November

The concept of No Shave November is during the month of November for 30 days, men are encouraged to forego shaving of any types so that they are embracing their hair. To raise awareness to men’s health, particularly for prostate and testicular cancers. But also now mental health issues and physical activity. This is our fourth year, and we just have a lot of fun, we have games and contests and educational information throughout the month. So here at Regional Hospital we have our own version, we call it no grows, we call it no shave November. But again it’s to raise awareness for men’s health issues. Particularly prostate and testicular and mental health while raising funds for a local charitable organization that does help cancer patient’s right here in the Wabash Valley. That organization is the hope center foundation, and it was started in 2003 by Dr. Chandra Ready, and it does provide financial assistance to cancer patients right here at home and all the funds stay local.
