Blue September

Tomorrow is the last day of September, and the last day of Blue September, a month-long public awareness campaign to get men to take their health, and cancer awareness in particular, seriously. Most of us men have a an “ignore it and it will go away” attitude. That attitude kills far too many of us far too early.

As part of Britain’s campaign, rowers from Britain’s Warwick university took part in a naked photo shoot. Eye catching though it may be, it also carries a serious message as two of the participants survived testicular cancer.

The more we men talk about men’s health issues, the less we’ll resist taking care of ourselves. Our loved ones will thank us for that.
