Why KCC? | Dash into Health | 'Stache Stories | Community | Prizes
Welcome to ‘Staches for NorthShore! Throughout the month of November, NorthShore aims to create awareness about men’s health and their cancer risk as well as raise funds for NorthShore’s Kellogg Cancer Center.
We are using blue mustaches to draw attention to the fact that men need to be aware of their health. Just because you look good, doesn’t mean your health looks good too. Annual exams are important to keep you healthy and to prevent illnesses like cancer.
