December is Identity Theft Protection Awareness Month and we’re taking this month to share some…
Join us in Raising Awareness for Prostate Cancer
In the United States, 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
What is No Shave November? No Shave November is a campaign that occurs every year in the month of November to bring awareness to Prostate Cancer. Every November, men will participate by growing their facial hair over the course of the month by not shaving and donating what they would have spent to prostate cancer research. Thanksgiving photos will be memorable!
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer to affect men in the United States. Early detections are critical. It is recommended to start screenings and tests at the age of 50 after your first screening test you should re-test every 2-3 years. There are three options for testing available and it’s easy!
The PSA test is the easiest option and it is a simple blood test that shows the levels of prostate-specific antigen in your bloodstream. The Gleason score measures the amount of prostate cells when put under a microscope. The scores of the test ranges from 1-5. If the cells resemble normal prostate cells, then your score is lower.

If you would like to participate we have two options. First, we are hosting an online fundraising campaign through the Prostate Cancer Foundation. And second, join us for our annual No Shave November campaign to raise awareness through social sharing. Please see below to participate! We encourage participation of any kind; grooming and trimming are perfectly acceptable.
Donate to the Prostate Cancer Foundation
Please help us bring awareness by supporting the Prostate Cancer Foundation. The advisors at Chesapeake Financial Advisors will be donating what they would have spent on shaving and grooming for the month.
Right now, through the Matching Grant Challenge, every donation is being matched dollar for dollar. Help us reach our goal of raising $2,000!
