The 2014 Father's Day Rally Kicks Off

PHEN's Annual Father's Day Rally has become the largest and most visible prostate cancer education and awareness effort with a focus on Black America reaching more than 1 million persons in 2013.

 

The Rally is held within partnering churches during their regular worship services on Father's Day where prostate cancer survivors and family members of those who have lost loved ones to the disease are recognized and join hands in prayer for healing and support. PHEN provides educational materials for the church congregations which links to PHEN's online educational resources.

 

All churches are invited to join and participate in the Rally.
