Cancer Treatment Centers of America and the NFL: Importance of Prostate Screenings.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America was founded in 1988 and is solely dedicated to finding the cure for any type of cancer. The company has five hospitals across the United States. They are located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Atlanta, Georgia, Phoenix, Arizona, Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Chicago Illinois.
The main goal of Cancer Treatment Centers of America is to give patients the best care when they need it most. Doctors provide an individualized plan best suit each patient that comes in no matter what type of cancer they may have. Now the company, along with the NFL Alumni Association and LabCorp have teamed up to get the word out about prostate cancer.

Beginning September the first and running through October fifteenth men who are forty years and older who meet certain requirements can sign up to take a free LabCorp prostate screening. The effort is being pushed by former coaches Herm Edwards, Bill Cowher, and Dick Vermeil. THese coaches are doing public service announcements to spread the word about men getting a prostate cancer screening early.
The statistics of prostate cancer speak for themselves. One in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at one point in their lives. If the disease is caught early enough the survival rate increases dramatically. Odds can increase up to seventy percent success rate. This is why awareness of the disease and the program is so important. The more men that get screened for prostate cancer the more likely it will be for Cancer Treatment Centers of America and other organizations like it to find a cure for this disease.
If the first two thousand screenings are already filled than men can get a screening at a discount rate of twenty-five dollars. It should be worth that much in order to save a man’s life.
