The Cancer Treatment Centers of America was founded in 1988. The group is dedicated to finding cures for every type of cancer possible/ The group also helps people struggling with anxiety and depression as well. Cancer Treatment Centers of America has five main offices located in the United States to help those diagnosed any type of cancer.
The five offices in the United States are located in the following areas. The offices are in Zion, Illinois, Goodyear, Arizona, Newman, Georgia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Tulsa, Oklahoma. The main headquarters of the group is located in Boca Raton, Florida. The group along with the NFL Alumni Association have come together to create a program in order to get the word out about prostate cancer screening. The event runs from September first until October fifteenth of this year.
The goal of the program is simple and begins with a Prostate Pep talk. NFL coaches like Dick Vermeil, Bill Cowher, and Herm Edwards have done a series of public service announcements stressing the importance of prostate cancer screenings for men.
The goal is to get men that are forty years of age and older to sign up for a prostate screening. If the man meets certain requirements and is one of the first two thousand men to sign up for the screening the exam is totally free for that man. Cancer Treatment Centers of America is also teaming up with LabCorp to provide free screenings. If the individual is after the two thousand mark then the screening will only cost twenty-five dollars.
This event is crucial for spreading the word about the importance of men being screened for prostate cancer. Getting screened early is key to helping men live long and happy life. That should be worth it for any man.
