Brandon West MLA Reg Helwar says "Movember" has more meaning for him this year.

This summer Helwer underwent surgery to treat testicular.

Its important for men to open up about their health issues Helwar says, "For the guys lets not be embarrassed about what we are going through, as difficult as it may be, I encourage people to do so."

He says he's joining men around the world in growing a moustache this month to draw attention to men's health.
