It´s never fun to be sick. No matter if it´s prostate cancer, testicular cancer or mental health related issues. But those who are effected by any of these horrible diseases are not fighting alone. No, there´s millions and millions of Gamers out there that show their support for those in need.
Like the Warframe community for example (there´s over 12 million Warframe players at the moment).
Which will give their support to the cause by donating money directly to the Movember community, or via doing live streams, contests and such in various Movember-related events. So if you´re a Warframe player, then you should consider showing your support to Movember as well.
Because mental health, prostate cancer and testicular cancer is something that affects us all on one level or another (friends, family, co-workers and so on).
Let´s fight the sickness together!
