Nearly half of cancer diagnoses and deaths are preventable. No-Shave November's mission is to not only raise funds for cancer research and treatment but to educate people about preventative measures. For more than six years, participants around the globe have put down their razors and let their hair grow to join the fight against cancer. The No-Shave November campaign has successfully raised more than $3.5 million to combat this disease.
