Reverend Dr. Lennett J. Anderson's Story

As a life-long resident of the historic black community of Upper Hammonds Plains, NS, I will be wearing Plaid for Dad the Friday before Father’s Day.

Being an African Nova Scotian, I am acutely aware of the harsh realities and triumphant stories of survivors of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer disproportionately affects men of African descent. It is imperative that we assist in funding research that will uncover better diagnostic and treatment options, and to provide comprehensive support services to men and their families impacted by prostate cancer.

I am committed to raising awareness and ask for your support in encouraging others to wear Plaid for Dad. Let’s embrace this life-defining moment – and inspire others to develop from life's negative experiences!
