The breakfast is open to all men with no charge to attend. It is funded by the American Cancer Society, Vinson House of Mortuary, Williams Gregory Martin Funeral Home and Urban Mission Ministries Inc.
The breakfast will be a time of fellowship, food, "important information and a candid discussion on men's health," according to a promotional flyer.
