The Minnesota Wild is getting ready to kick off its annual “Movember” campaign starting Nov. 1. It’s a campaign where men both young and old give their beards and mustaches a clean shave to start the month, then let it grow throughout November while raising money and awareness for prostate cancer research.
Whether it’s a co-worker, friend or family member, we all know someone who’s battled cancer. This month, through Movember, WCCO is trying to raise awareness about cancers affecting men.
A funeral Mass is being planned for Monday for best-selling Minnesota author Vince Flynn, creator of the Mitch Rapp counter-terrorism thriller series. A family statement says it will be held Monday morning at the Cathedral of St. Paul.

No, it’s not a mustache-only gang (although that’d be a sweet clique to be in). And it’s not Burt Reynolds look-alike month. Well, at least not intentionally.
The scruffy look is in across the country — at least for the month of November. “Movember” is officially in full swing.
There are several studies out there that tell you what’s good for you and what’s bad. But what’s true and what’s a myth? We’ll try to simplify it all for you here.
Writing a bestselling novel is tough enough, so just imagine doing it under deadline while battling cancer.

Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men. Fortunately, a new study is giving patients some hope.
