MoForNovember at CentraState started several years ago to raise money and awareness for men's cancer treatment and services. Participants are encouraged to grow their facial hair for the month of November (1-30) and encourage their family and friends to support them by donating to their cause.
Thanks to the efforts of our local Police and Fire Departments and several departments at CentraState, over $30,000 has been raised since 2017. For 2020, we hope to raise $12,020. This money is being used to provide prostate and colorectal cancer screenings to the community as well as colorectal lectures (including take home testing kits). We hope to add more screenings for 2021.
CentraState provides prostate and colorectal screenings and lectures to promote awareness of these cancers. According to the CDC, Colorectal cancer almost always develops from precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) in the colon or rectum. Screening tests can find precancerous polyps, so they can be removed before they turn into cancer. Screening tests also can find colorectal cancer early, when treatment works best. for more information please visit https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/dcpc/prevention/screening.htm
