No Shave November

Men’s Health Awareness Month

Questions?


No Shave SCV is a campaign to bring awareness to men’s health issues in the Santa Clarita Valley.  HomeSmart is the presenting sponsor for this inaugural campaign.

It is easy, all you have to do is go to noshavescv.org or circleofhopeinc.org and sign up to participate in the month long campaign. Then the fun begins, you get to give your razors a rest for the month of Movember.  The campaign will culminate with an end-of-the-month mixer to show off your newly acquired growth! I am sure there will be some prizes awarded.

The No Shave SCV Mixer date and location will be announced in the next few days.

We want to get before and after pictures to post on our site.  We also want to recognize you for supporting this campaign.  On the night of the mixer we will have a photographer on had to document the transformation.

It is a way to bring awareness to men’s health issues that often go unchecked because whatever we have it is no big deal!  It’s a way to raise funds in a low-key way to help Circle of Hope Inc. provide assistance to individuals for their treatment of men’s health issues.

The answer is 100% yes!  You can donate here at www.noshavescv.org — it’s as easy as that.

No! You are ahead of the campaign. You can go to the website and make your donation.

Yes, we have had many women forgo shaving their legs in honor of No Shave SCV.

Some Facts about Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer is not common.
Symptoms in the Testicles

The most common symptom of testicular cancer is a painless lump on or in a testicle. Sometimes the testicle may become swollen or larger, without a lump. (It’s normal for one testicle to be slightly larger than the other, and for one to hang lower than the other.) Some testicular tumors might cause pain, but most of the time they do not. Men with testicular cancer may also have a heavy or aching feeling in the lower belly or scrotum.

While testicular cancer is not common, it can develop in males of any age, including infants and elderly men. Almost half of all cases of testicular cancer are in men between the ages of 20 and 34.
