Things are getting hairy at WOMC! Bobby Mitchell, Twizzler and others sign up for No Shave November for prostate cancer awareness

At CBS RADIO Detroit’s greatest hits station 104.3 WOMC, stubble will be the order of the day, when many of the male staff are pledging to keep No Shave November to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer research. According to the American Cancer Society, in the U.S this year around 239,000 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed, with 29, 700 men succumbing to the disease. “Around one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime and that figure is too high. Treatments can be very tough and we need more research into the reasons why the incidence is so high, and how we can improve treatments. Getting hairy is one small way we can bring attention – and hopefully funding – to this medical issue,” said Bobby Mitchell, co-host of the Bobby and Stacey Show, WOMC’s morning program. Stacey DuFord, his co-host, is supporting her male colleagues in their efforts, taking before and after photos and posting regular updates on WOMC.com and the Bobby and Stacey Facebook page. WOMC has teamed up with the Upper Lip Hair Affair, a non-profit organization which promotes research and awareness of prostate cancer, for donating to the cause.
