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.
