PHENís 10th Annual Fatherís Day Rally Grows and Expands National Outreach
PHEN is proud to present the “10th Annual Father's Day Rally Against Prostate Cancer” on Father’s Day, June 17th, 2018. During their regular Father's Day worship services PHEN’s church partners will recognize prostate cancer survivors and those who have lost loved ones to the disease. They will join hands in a special prayer for support and healing. Through this special recognition and spiritual support those who may be suffering with the disease, or from losing a loved one, will gain a sense of support from their church family. This brief but impactful ceremony creates a spirit of togetherness and becomes important towards overall healing. This Father’s Day Rally within churches nationwide has been the underpinning of PHEN’s prostate cancer education and awareness efforts which has expanded in scope with support from churches.
