Ex-NFL Player, Rosey Grier joins Medical Experts and a Survival Panel
WHAT: In the U.S., nearly four million men are living with prostate cancer and one in nine men will be diagnosed with the disease in his lifetime. For African-American men, the risk is even greater – one in six will develop the disease, and an African-American man is seventy-six percent more likely to develop prostate cancer, and more than twice as likely to die from the disease. September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) and The West Angeles Brotherhood Organization present “How Much Do You Know About Prostate Cancer?” to raise awareness about prostate cancer among this high risk population, discuss early detection, the latest research and treatment options, survival, risk factors, and lifestyle choices.
Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. of West Angeles Church of God in Christ will be presiding the fellowship breakfast which will feature a continental breakfast, a Q & A session with guest speakers/medical experts, PCF celebrity ambassador and minister Rosey Grier, plus a patient panel to discuss their inspiring journey as prostate cancer survivors. Each guest will receive the newest edition of the PCF’s Health & Wellness Guide, a comprehensive prostate cancer resource with the latest information about diet, nutrition, and exercise. Open to the general public, both men and women are encouraged to attend. For more information, visit www.pcf.org or www.westa.org. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (323) 733-8300 extension 8302.
