The article “Football League Alumni Association, Cancer Treatment Centers of America and Labcorp Team Up to Offer Prostate Cancer Screenings Starting in September” published by PR Newswire reveals how three associations are joining together to raise awareness about prostate cancer.
Because almost one in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point in their life, many are beginning to understand the dire need for early screenings. That’s why the National Football League Alumni Association, Labcorp and the Cancer Treatment Centers of America are joining forces to bring education about the disease to men around the country.
They are hosting events around the country, beginning in early September and ending mid-October. Labcorp will be offering a Prostate Specific Antigen screening at any of its locations throughout the U.S. The first 2,000 screenings will be free and any screenings scheduled during the sign-up period will be available at a discounted rate.
Many from the NFL will be joining the efforts as a part of the Prostate Pep Talk campaign. Head Coaches like Dick Vermeil, Bill Cowher, and Herm Edwards will be participating to raise awarenees about this deadly cancer. They seek to encourage men to get screenings after turning 40, particularly African American men who have a 70% higher chance of being diagnosed with the disease.
The Cancer Treatment Centers of America base their treatment in precision treatment. This treatment differs from traditional treatment because it uses advanced genomic testing technology to bring personalized care to the cellular level. The targeted therapy focuses on the molecular characteristics that can escape the immune system.
They also provide a team of experts whose sole focus is on cancer. They provide skilled doctors and clinicians who have specialized in cancer treatment, from diagnosis to managing side effects. They are a patient oriented organization who provides a team of experts who all work together at one site to provide care tailored to each individual’s needs.
