“I want to start a conversation so those diagnosed know they aren’t in this alone.”
— Roman Dubczak, Global Investment Banking, CIBC, Toronto
“I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2007 — and there’s no playbook for how to handle something like that. But, Movember has created a safe space for men to support each other in their prostate cancer journeys.
It’s a place that encourages men to get checked out, access resources and to stay as mentally and physically healthy as possible.
That’s why, as a member of Team CIBC, every year I fundraise to raise awareness for Movember. It’s an opportunity for our team to have fun while helping to build a support network for those impacted by prostate cancer. And as a survivor, I know about the importance of being surrounded by people who will be there for you in a time like that.”
Movember is an annual event that raises awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide by growing moustaches.
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canadian men. It takes the lives of approximately 11 Canadian men every day.
Team CIBC has supported Movember for 10 years with Roman leading the fundraising.
Today, Team CIBC has grown to 5,200 members and become the #1 Funder of the Movember Foundation worldwide, collectively raising over $3.3 million.
