Winslow Twp. PD - No Shave November

The Winslow Twp. Police Department will participate in their second annual No Shave November campaign aimed at bringing awareness to cancer. Members of the Police Department will, if they voluntarily choose to participate, make a donation to cancer research. The participating members will begin a month-long journey to forgo shaving to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness. We are going to grow hair to grow cancer awareness to support cancer prevention, research and education. 

The Winslow Twp. Police Department aims to bring awareness to all types of cancer, which include both prostate and testicular cancer. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in American men. In 2018, 164,690 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Currently, 2.9 million men live with prostate cancer in the United States. 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in America for men between the ages of 15-35. In 2018, 9310 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer, and about 400 men will die from testicular cancer this year. 

Early detection of prostate and testicular cancer is critical to survival rates. The five-year survival rate for prostate cancer, when caught in the early stages, is 100%. The five-year survival rate of testicular cancer, when caught in the early stages, is 99%. Both prostate and testicular cancer not caught in the early stages has limited treatment options, early diagnoses is critical to the survive of these cancers. Prostate cancer can be detected early by getting a simple PSA blood test. Testicular cancer can be detected early by getting educated on self-screening exams. 

We ask the public to join us in this campaign. We are seeking our community members to spark conversations with your family members and friends about cancer awareness.
