One of the most concerning physical ailments and diseases for all men across the world is prostate cancer. Unfortunately, the awareness of the disease is still relatively low and most people are not aware of all of the benefits that can come with early screening. In an attempt to educate more people about the disease and encourage people to take advantage of early screening, three major organizations are teaming up to help eligible people receive a free screening.
The three organizations, which are Cancer Treatment Centers of America, the National Football League Alumni Association, and LabCorp have formed a joint venture to try and educate more men and increase the overall access to the very important prostate screening. Over the next few months, more than 2,000 men that are older than 40 years old and meet other physical eligibility requirements will be able to sign up and receive a free screening at any of the nearly 2,000 locations across the country. Even after the first 2,000 free slots, those that are eligible will still be able to sign up for a screening at a much discounted rate of only $25.
One of the primary partners of the initiative, Cancer Treatment Centers of America Global, has continued to provide cancer-screening services to customers. Today, the organization has a network of five hospitals that serve a range of patients that are fighting different cancer problems. The organization offers a very unique approach to preventing and treating cancer including surgery, immunotherapy, chemotherapy, radiation, and other therapy services. The organization currently has its hospitals located in several major markets including Chicago, Philadelphia, and Atlanta. The new initiative is just the latest step of the organization to try and help people learn more about their risks, develop plans to screen and prevent, and hopefully treat the disease.
