We are truly excited to launch our “Fifth Annual Father’s Day Rally Against Prostate Cancer” with a goal to reach one million persons in partnership with churches nationwide. PHEN clearly recognizes the challenge that lies ahead in accomplishing this goal. However, we believe that the successes of our Father Day Rallies since 2009 provide the foundation and impetus for meeting our objectives this year.
To realize our mission we are appealing to all churches to partner in this year’s Father’s Day effort as a unique opportunity to educate and support the health needs of your members and community. We are calling upon prostate cancer survivors and their family members to take on leadership roles within their churches in support of the Rally. This movement rests on our shoulders and we need your help.
I know there are a number of organizations and leaders within communities around the country who are performing outstanding work in the fight against prostate cancer. We invite you to join with us as a partner in this year’s Rally. Working together we have the opportunity to take a major step forward in accomplishing all our goals.
PHEN initiatives are made possible through the generous financial support of its industry partners, organizations and individuals. We will need your strong and continuing support for the success of the 2013
Father’s Day Rally with its expanded size and scope.
Through our collective efforts we envision a grand celebration of historical significance on Father’ Day. The impact of educating, mobilizing and fully engaging Black America in the fight against prostate cancer will be profound for us all. Lives will be saved, suffering reduced and the overall effort to find a cure for this disease will be advanced.
I sincerely thank you for your support.

This year PHEN is celebrating its Ten Year Anniversary! We have been on an exciting and productive journey during our first decade while paving a road for the future.
I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2000 and founded PHEN in 2003 to increase awareness and knowledge about prostate cancer within Black America which suffers an alarming 140% higher death rate than for all other men. There is a widespread void of knowledge and actions needed to address this deadly crisis.
PHEN’S first ten years has been dedicated to mobilizing a series of national initiatives aimed at filling this void. These initiatives are achieving impressive results and PHEN is now widely recognized as a leader in prostate cancer patient education and advocacy efforts. We celebrate PHEN’s accomplishments with a great sense of progress and excitement, and with a strong foundation of enduring and proven initiatives on which to enhance and expand our efforts for the work that still lies ahead.
