Survivor Network in Action
PHEN's national education and awareness outreach is supported through its PHEN Survivor Network. Prostate cancer survivors willing to volunteer their time and expertise to support PHEN's mission provide important leadership for PHEN's efforts. Each Father's Day Educational Symposium was moderated and/or led by a prostate cancer survivor. PHEN extends its sincere appreciation for their outstanding support.

 Thank You Church Partners! 

Through our joint Father's Day Rally and Educational Symposiums, we are succeeding in raising the level of prostate health knowledge and awareness as never before done within our communities. We are at the beginning of a national grassroots movement that will change the course of Black America's devastating prostate cancer crisis.   

 

Prostate cancer is now discussed more openly by survivors as they reach out to help others face the disease; men are standing and joining hands before their congregations as churches take an active role in educating and supporting their members, and men and their family members are attending and participating in our educational symposiums. These positive actions are a result of our combined efforts and represent significant progress in the fight against prostate cancer within our communities.

   

While there is much left to be done, I am truly excited about our work together and the future success that I know we will have. Through prayer all things are possible.

 

Please provide us with your feedback on the Fathers Day Rally by completing this brief survey.

 

Thank You,
