I received a call about a week ago from a brother representing Cornerstone Baptist Church in sunny South Dallas asking if I would come and speak to the men about prostate cancer/health awareness. Their ultimate goal is to start a prostate cancer support group and they need someone to share some personal and vital information. Let’s just say he didn’t have to ask twice and I didn’t hesitate to even think about it! This is what I love to do and I’ve looked forward for an opportunity to personally share my story and raise awareness with a large group of men. I can’t stress enough the importance of us taking our prostate health very serious, as with any other health concern.
I’ve labelled this as “Broken & Spoken.” Since I was broken to serve, I’m also getting the gracious opportunity to be used to “speak” before a large group and tell my story in order to get more and more brothers serious about this. And as my slogan says, I will keep it real because brothers really need to know. We don’t need any fluff about our prostate health. This is coming from someone who has received mercy to be here and tell about it and get many others to be proactive and get checked regularly. Details are as follows:
Date & time: November 28, 2012 @ 8pm
Place: Cornerstone Baptist Church, 1819 MLK Jr Blvd, Dallas, TX
I’m hoping they will record it. If not, I will try to bootleg myself with my iPhone and attempt to get the best sound out of it. My wish is to upload and post it on the site.
If you’re in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and free that night, please come by… especially if you are the age of 35 and over – most definitely if you have a family history of prostate cancer. And if you’re African American, please free up that night and get yourself down there on the double!!!
As a disclaimer, I’m not a urologist and I don’t have all the answers. But, I have a story and experience that is so vital and my life has been sustained by the grace of GOD for me to share it! I can’t wait! DON’T MISS IT!!!
