“If it’s bad, it might get worse,
but I know that it’s going to be better.
And you have to know that.
Every storm runs out of rain.”
– Maya Angelou
Faith is an important part of PHEN’s programs and activities. Cancer patients, and those living as survivors, oftentimes rely on their faith to help them through challenging times like these. Our faith leaders have responded to our special request for support during the COVID-19 crisis.

“Father I come to you today first to say thank you Lord for life, and thank you Lord for all of those who are associated with and belong to the PHEN organization, and around the world. Father I pray that you build a hedge of protection around our lives as we go from day to day not knowing what tomorrow will bring, you hold our lives in your hand God. Father I ask that you continue to help those who are in the medical field to come up with a cure for the COVID–19 pandemic wherever they may be around the world.”
