It was recently announced that the National Football League Alumni Association will collaborate with the Cancer Treatment Centers of America to increase awareness for men on the topic of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is one of the most popular forms of cancer that men are diagnosed with. As a result of the collaboration, men over the age of 40 will be eligible to receive a free prostate screening.
The Prostate Pep Talk campaign will feature famous NFL coaches talking about the risks of prostate cancer. The special announcements will take place during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Research done by the American Cancer Society shows that there will be over 100,000 new prostate cancer diagnosis every year. Important factors to pay attention to are race and family history.
There will be a national kick off press conference at the NFL Films Studio. Among those scheduled to attend are former NFL head coach Herman Edwards, Emmy Award winner Beasley Reece and Sean Cavanaugh, the Chief of Radiation Oncology at The Cancer Treatment Centers of America. There will also be events in Chicago and Phoenix.
Cavanaugh notes that screening can potentially stop prostate cancer. The Cancer Treatment Centers of America are excited to work with the NFL in order to increase awareness about different screening techniques and treatment options. Cavanaugh wants men to be aware that a less than normal screening does not mean that the cancer has developed.
Men can schedule their screening through Prostate Pep Talk. The testing will be done at LabCorp’s service centers. The NFL and CTCA are confident that their partnership will help improve the lives of men throughout the United States.
Based out of Florida, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America are a group of hospitals that treat patients who have been diagnosed with cancer. CTCA uses different treatment options, such as radiation and chemotherapy.
