Prostate Health Education Network (PHEN)

(Quincy, MA) July 27, 2017 The fifth Annual Prostate Health Education Symposium is scheduled for Freedom Temple Ministries on Saturday, August 12, at 8 a.m. and ending at 12 p.m. The church is located at 215 E. Main St., Rock Hill, SC 29730. The event is a partnership between Bishop Herbert C. Crump, Jr., Senior Pastor, the health care ministry and the Prostate Health Education Network, Inc., a nationwide patient education and advocacy organization.

Freedom Temple church is the thirteenth of a series of 21 prostate health symposia taking place in Boston, Nashville, Dallas, Oakland and other cities until October. All symposia are FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Lunch will b provided.

The symposia are a integral aspect of PHEN the no-profit organization dedicated to providing support and education to African American men. It was founded in 2003 by Thomas A. Farrington, a Massachusetts business and community leader who is now a 17-year prostate cancer survivor, and serves as PHEN president. There is currently a prostate cancer crisis in Black America, said Farrington. Black men have a 130 percent higher death rate than white men. It makes this the largest racial disparity for any type of major cancer among men or women.

Thank heaven for enlightened church partners like Freedom Temple Church who are willing to step up and help us educate men and their families about their prostate cancer risk, treatment and support strategies, so they can lead long and healthy lives, Farrington added.

According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death in African American men, behind lung cancer. When compared to all causes of death, prostate cancer is the fourth leading cause of death among African men over age 45. About one in five African American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime, with the highest prostate cancer incidence and mortality rates in the United States.

The symposium will focus on specific prostate health topics including: screening and early detection, treatment options, diet and nutrition, managing treatment side effects, advance prostate cancer, and the importance of faith when facing cancer. The program is structured for health men at high risk for prostate cancer, prostate cancer survivors, caregivers, and family members. The FREE public event includes breakfast for all attendees, as well as prostate cancer screening.

This is a special opportunity for Freedom Temple Ministries, said Bishop Crump. It is critical for our congregation to be involved in raising awareness within our church, extended family and greater Rock Hill about prostate cancer, and show the connection between faith and healing when it comes to a prostate cancer diagnosis.
