It’s Movember!

That means as well as seeing lots of extra facial hair on the front covers of celebrity magazines, website photo galleries and Instagram feeds we are bracing ourselves as TV presenters preen over their newly found beards and celebs sport ‘interesting’ Movember attempts like these.   Of course, it’s all for a good cause, and Movember isn’t the only thing going on this month when it comes to cancer awareness. Did you know that this month marks not one, but five different types of cancer awareness?

  • Lung Cancer Awareness
  • Carcinoid Cancer Awareness
  • Pancreatic Cancer Awareness
  • Stomach Cancer Awareness
  • Movember – Prostate Cancer

  3. Track your sleep patterns and optimise your rest routine.
  4. Access Liferaft Resources to find cancer support groups.
