Battling cancer head-on, at Bethesda Presbyterian Church in Homewood


The Obediah Cole Foundation, in partnership with Primary Care Health Services, came together to present a prostate and colorectal cancer lunch and learn hosted by Bethesda Presbyterian Church in Homewood.


The event’s purpose was to educate men and women of color on the importance of being checked or screened for PSA blood levels, and for all cancers, because it affects African Americans more than any other ethnic group. Also, African Americans historically don’t get checked for possible cancers as early as they should. The organizations and the church wanted to help educate everyone on getting checked early, as the chances of overcoming the disease increase the earlier it’s detected.
