As you may know already it is Movember and you’re starting to see all the dirty muzzies coming out! While raising awareness for the causes we believe in has always been a priority for us here at RVL, this year it has become personal.

Recently in August, one of our RVL family members and athlete was diagnosed with cancer. It first started with a tumour which was promptly removed. However, upon diagnostics a couple of weeks later, it was seen to have spread. They were rushed to the hospital and began chemo treatment and are still being treated as of now.

I think it’s safe to say that everyone knows someone that has been affected by cancer. I’m sure we’ve all heard about the impact of cancer., but seeing it play out first hand hits close to home. As a company, we began to do a bit more research about the effect cancer has on men - here’s what we found:

There are many different types of testicular cancer. Treatment decisions depend on the kind of cancer. It is estimated that about 1 in 8 Canadian men will develop testicular cancer during their lifetime and 1 in 29 will die from it. And while there’s so much more we can do this is what we came up with.

To help further improve research, care, and, support the cause, we have created a bold t-shirt designated to bring awareness to cancer as a whole. We will be donating all proceeds in their name to a foundation that our RVL team member chooses.

Please join us in our quest to raise awareness and eradicate this disease.

Work hard. Stay Humble.
