More than 160,000 men aged 40 or older will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in the U.S. in 2017, a number which has prompted the National Football League Alumni, LabCorp, and The Cancer Treatment Centers of America to partner for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. The aim of the month is to educate men in the target range of 40 or older about the dangers of the most common form of cancer seen among men.
The Cancer Treatment Centers of America and LabCorp have come together to bring a number of free and discounted prostate cancer screenings to men who meet eligibility requirements. The majority of men over 40 are recommended to undertake the Prostate Specific Antigen test which can provide a guide to physicians about the possibility of prostate cancer being found within the body of an individual patient; The Cancer Treatment Centers of America believe it important to advise patients that a positive result from the PSA is not a guarantee of prostate cancer being present.
Alongside the offer of free and discounted PSA screenings, The Cancer Treatment Centers of America is also working to raise awareness of prostate cancer with the NFL. During regular season football games during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, a number of public service announcements will be screened featuring iconic former NFL coaches.
Founded in 1988, The Cancer Treatment Centers of America was founded by Robert J. Stephenson after the death of his own mother from cancer. Stephenson felt a better approach could be found to research and treat different forms of cancer that were available during his mother’s illness.
The use of various complimentary-therapies marks the difference between The Cancer Treatment Centers of America and other healthcare providers who do not provide nutritional and alternative therapies to aid in recovery from traditional cancer treatments.
