Th month of November is Men's Health Awareness month, also known as "No Shave November," or "Movember." While Veteran Voices For Fibromyalgia typically advocates on behalf of the Veteran and Fibromyalgia Communities, VVFF would be remiss if we did not amplify the voices of Men, living with other medical conditions as well.... Here are some interviews done with both Veteran and Non-Veteran Male Warriors who are promoting awareness, supporting research and amplifying the voices of men in the Men's Health Advocacy Space:
Justin Birckbichler, founder of "A Ballsy Sense of Tumor."
