About MOvember.bm

Each November, Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre provides a fun platform for men to have conversations about their health and to raise funds to directly impact men’s health in Bermuda.

 

MOvember.bm, as it is now fondly called, is about participation, getting together, checking in with one another and raising needed funds. Thanks to our community MOvember.bm has raised over $573,429 in the past 13 years. These funds are used to ensure that all men in Bermuda have access to information (know what they can do to reduce their risk of being diagnosed with cancer, what cancer signs and symptoms to look for) and to ensure all men have access to cancer screening and radiation therapy treatment with no out of pocket expenses.

 

Where the money goes

100% of all funds donated to Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre are used to support local men’s health initiatives including the free annual men’s health screening event, lunch and learn Reduce Your Risk presentation series and the Centre’s Equal Access Fund providing financial subsidization for prostate consultation, ultrasounds, biopsies and radiation therapy.  

Whether you use your MO, your MOVE and your Numbers, you will be raising money to help Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre fund men’s health initiatives from prevention through treatment, so that more men live happier, healthier and longer lives.
