In celebration of Movember, Saku Koivu, Corey Perry, Teemu Selanne, Matt Beleskey, Sheldon Brookbank, Jonas Hiller, Ryan Getzlaf, Francois Beauchemin, Andrew Cogliano, Kurtis Foster, Dan Ellis, Luca Sbisa, and even George Parros shaved off his famous facial hair at The Art of Shaving Barber Spa in Washington Square to support the cause – a month long charity event that asks participants to start clean shaven on November 1st and then grow a moustache for 30 days to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and other men’s health issues.

For the next 30 days the Anaheim Ducks will be growing moustaches, the “hairy ribbon” for men's health and the players growing them will be month-long walking billboards for cancers that affect men.  The funds that are raised in the US, which support the research and treatment of prostate cancer and other cancers affecting men, are directed to programs run directly by Movember and its men’s health partners, LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation and the Prostate Cancer Foundation, a Washington, DC based charity.

The Movember Foundation is the largest non-government funder of prostate cancer research in the world.  In the United States nearly 65,000 participants have raised $7.5 million for Movember's US men's health partners, and has funded research that lead to the discovery of a complete genetic map of prostate cancer, and the discovery of 25+ subtypes of prostate cancer– two essential steps to finding a cure to the disease which takes a man’s life every 15.6 minutes.
