This month, instead of wearing a colored ribbon, men from around the world are growing mustaches to raise awareness and money for men's health issues like prostate and testicular cancer.

The movement has dubbed November, "Mo-vember," "mo" meaning mustache. We speak with Jim Slater, one of a number of National Hockey League players who is sporting a hairy upper lip for a good cause.    He plays forward for the Atlanta Thrashers, and his teammates also grew mustaches this month.

This segment aired on November 29, 2010.
