Whether you are a fan of the ‘Mo’ or not we can’t help but be surrounded by them as they crop up this month for Movember.
Whilst our Mo Bro’s are growing a moustache remember those wise words, behind every great man stands a great woman.
These women we know as Mo Sista’s, woman who love a mo and are dedicated to supporting her moustache growing friend, colleague, family member, boyfriend or husband. These women are committed to raising awareness of men’s health and funds during the 30 days of Movember.
Jo Holley is one of these women. She has been a Mo Sista, MC and event manager for Movember for the last 5 years. She has been an avid supporter since 2009, but things really sunk in for her when her father, who had not been to the doctor for 10 years, was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2011. He got the operation quickly and received the all-clear soon after, but it was another reason for Jo to further support Movember.
Jo’s mission is to encourage men to not ignore their health, go for regular check ups and to lose the “she’ll be right” attitude.
Jo brings up a very good point as she says men tend not to speak with other men about health issues so as a Mo Sista you can speak up for them and ensure “She (downstairs) will be alright”.
