Happy Father's Day and Thank You!
I wish all my fellow fathers and their families a Happy Father's Day! Fatherhood is a wonderful blessing.

I also want to extend my sincerest Thank You to the churches joining PHEN for our 6th Annual Father's Day Rally Against Prostate Cancer and our educational symposiums.

The excitement that these efforts are creating around the country is truly remarkable. 

Together we are making a major impact towards eliminating Black America's prostate cancer crisis.

Be blessed on Father's Day.
