Cancer Treatment Centers of America recently published an article with PR Newswire titled, “The National Football League Alumni Association, Cancer Treatment Centers of America and LabCorp Team Up to Offer Prostate Cancer Screenings Starting in September”.
The article is a part of the campaign which started in September where the three companies help raise awareness about prostate cancer. This particular cancer affects nearly one of every seven men and the American Cancer Society expects there will be more than 160,000 new cases diagnosed in 2017 alone.
Each company is seeking to do its part in raising awareness. LabCorp is providing free screenings to 2,000 men and they will offer discounted screenings through mid October. Their specialized Prostate Specific Antigen screening is available at any of their locations across the U.S.
The NFLA will be hosting the Prostate Pep Talk Campaign, a public service announcement with hosts like Bill Cowher, Dick Vermeil, and Herm Edwards. Many of them have watched friends and colleagues go through the pain of diagnosis and treatment, which makes them all the more dedicated to raising awareness.
CTCA will host a variety of events which feature former NFL players across different cities to help bring awareness to the communities and provide encouragement to the cancer patients.
