Cancer Treatment Centers Of America Patrners With The NFL For Prostate Awareness

For a little over a month the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, the National Football League Alumni Association, and LabCorp are coming together to educate men about the dangers of prostate cancer. The work of the three groups begins on September 1st and continues through October 15th with a range of free and discounted Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) tests provided for eligible men aged over 40; the first 2,000 men will receive their PSA test free of charge followed by those meeting eligibility requirements receiving the test for just $25.

The aim of the six months of tests is to raise awareness in men in the age range where testing becomes important to learn more about prostate cancer and the effective treatments of cancer have been created to fight this disease. The Cancer Treatment Centers of America, the NFLA, and LabCorp hope to ensure men in the appropriate age range are aware of the PSA test and the results which will be measured against a target range; the Cancer Treatment Centers of America hopes to make clear to men a result outside the target range does not necessarily mean prostate cancer is present and difficult treatments are necessary.

Established in 1988 with its first location in Illinois, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America has grown into one of the most important treatment providers in the U.S. Now totaling six locations across the nation, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America has become a popular option for those who are not happy looking to solely be cured using the traditional treatments; a range of complementary treatments are offered by the Cancer Treatment Centers of America to aid the recovery of patients.

The Cancer Treatment Centers of America was formed by Richard J. Stephenson when his mother was unable to recover from her own cancer diagnosis and Stephenson decided more options could have been explored outside the traditional forms of cancer treatment.
