Every November, men all across the world are united together underneath the power of facial hair and raising awareness about cancer issues.
This year is no different, and once again for the 4th year in a row the Children with Cancer club is running the Movember event in order to raise awareness about cancer in Vietnam, as well as donations towards Thuy’s Dream, a charity that goes towards children with cancer in Vietnam.
Cancer in Vietnam is a highly significant issue, with 110,000 new cases reported every year and a 73% mortality rate. Often the patients realize in the late stages of cancer rendering it almost incurable. The treatments are highly expensive and the patients have to sell everything to afford the cure and live in abysmal conditions within the hospital.
Throughout November, our male teachers will be sporting flamboyant moustaches in order to raise awareness for testicular cancer. Students will be able to witness the glorious facial hair and by the end of the month, they can bid for the right to shave off these glorious moustaches.
We look forward to all the dashing moustaches in the following month in order to support this critical issue in Vietnam!
