Cancer Treatment Centers of America provided an article to PR Newswire as a part of their campaign to raise awareness about Prostate cancer. The article titled “The National Football League Alumni Association, Cancer Treatment Centers of America and LabCorp Team Up to Offer Prostate Cancer Screenings Starting in September” reveals a variety of events hosted by the different associations.
For instance, Cancer Treatment Centers of America will host a variety of events in Atlanta, Chicago, Phoenix, and Tulsa. Each one will either raise awareness with former NFL players while providing education and support networking opportunities or they will be held for patients with local community leaders.
NFLA will not only send former NFL players to those events, but former coaches Herm Edwards, Bill Cowher, and Dick Vermeil will host the Prostate Pep Talk Campaign. These PSAs will be released nationally and will air throughout September.
LabCorps will offer 2,000 free Prostate Specific Antigen screenings at all of their locations across the U.S. After the 2,000 have been accounted for, they will provide a discounted rate for screening men over 40 who are eligible.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America have hospital locations in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Arizona and Oklahoma. Cancer Treatment Centers of America is known for their specialized treatment of cancer patients, bringing the latest in technological advancements, a team of dedicated specialists, and personalized treatment plans.
The treatment provided at the CTCA hospitals are patient oriented. There is a team of multidisciplinary experts who work together at the same hospital, creating a tailored plan according to the needs of each patient. They provide coordinated cancer care so all of the doctor’s appointments, medications, treatment visits are organized through a care manager. They are also using targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and advanced genomic testing to decipher the characteristics that allow each tumor to grow and resist the immune system.
