PHEN Celebrates Ten Years!

February 6, 2013

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.

Secretary of State, John Kerry, alongside Congressman Gregory Meeks, stand in support of the fight against Prostate Cancer. Rev. Dr. Carroll A. Baltimore, speaks in favor of raising awareness for Prostate Cancer and the racial disparity among African American men.

Over Ten Years of outstanding work in the Fight Against Prostate Cancer

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.

My sincerest appreciations to the many that supported PHEN, making our first decade possible and successful. Throughout 2013 PHEN will celebrate its ten year anniversary with ACTIONS as we continue executing our initiatives, collectively known as the “Rally Against Prostate Cancer.”
I invite you to celebrate with us by joining our rally and continuing your support of PHEN to help shape a future for all men absent prostate cancer.

Yours truly,

Thomas A. Farrington
