National Football League Alumni Association teams up with Cancer Treatment Centers of America in the article “Football League Alumni Association, Cancer Treatment Centers of America and LabCorp Team Up to Offer Prostate Cancer Screenings Starting in September”. The article published by PR Newswire discusses the efforts to raise awareness about the cancer that affects almost one in seven men.
Because so many men are diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, which the American Cancer Society says will reach nearly 161,360 in 2017 alone, the need for greater awareness surrounding the disease is necessary. Cancer Treatment Centers of America suggest that early detection is the best defense against the cancer.
To promote early diagnosis and awareness, LabCorp will be offering 2,000 free screenings from the beginning of September to October 15th. They provide a Prostate Specific Antigen screening and will even offer a discounted rate after the first 2,000 screenings. Throughout the campaign they will be offering $25 screenings for those who sign up.
The NFLA will also host the Prostate Pep Talk, a public service announcement campaign. Herm Edwards will be featured on it along with Beasley Reece, Mike Quick, and Jon Runyan. Many of these men have had personal experience with the cancer as they watched friends and collegues go through diagnosis and treatment.
The Cancer Centers of America provide personalized treatment across five cities in the U.S. Their doctors are cancer specialists. Each patient has a specialized team who are all located in the same hospital. Each team works together to create a treatment plan tailored to each patietn’s needs.
The Cancer Centers of America also offer a clinical trial called Targeted Agent and Profiling Utilization Registry. The study seeks to improve and increase the understanding of how anti-cancer drugs perform for a wider array of cancers. They match the specific drug to a variety of tumors that have genomic mutations.
