“It is very important for males to be educated on this topic. We are promoting prostate cancer awareness so men know the current state of their heath and to be proactive. We are working to rally our community to confront the crisis together with a call to action and we will “Leave No Man Behind.” With our generous sponsors we are able to provide this to the community at no cost. Every man should know their PSA number; I hope they take advantage of this opportunity.” – Reverend Ford
