growing out that mustache or facial hair, the month of november provides you a unique opportunity to do that, and do some good at the same time." "i don't think as men we like to talk about ourselves. we don't like to acknowledge a lot of issues and things. and so culturally, it's a change." during november, men are talking about the health issues that affect them. the of 'hey, this is what we're doing.' it's a conversation starter of we're growing mustaches for this cause. and it helps us to actually focus and remember some of the bigger things in life that are important of overall health and awareness." naturally, local barber shops are also taking part "here at blade & 110 percent." as nikki delacruz explains, it's important to pay attention to the basics. "checkups are important. you know, like go to the doctor regularly and take care of yourself. self-care is important." she's especially aware of this because someone close to her was just diagnosed with prostate cancer. "one of my family members just found out about it and it was just a regular checkup and something in his blood count was different and thank god they found it in the early stages and it's being treated and it's not going to be an issue. but it's definitely important to look out for that kind of stuff. and just go on your regular checkups, because they can catch it early." staying healthy takes support and encouragment from everyone in the community.

"so focus on your health just a little more this november. and maybe consider growing out that facial hair. in medford,
