The NFL Alumni Association Joins Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Fight Against Cancer

The NFL Alumni Association, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America and LabCorp have joined together to fight prostate cancer. One in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer each year, and if you are African American the statistic is one out of five men will get prostate cancer each year.

The drive is to get men to have a PSA screening, which can be an indication that prostate cancer is present. LabCorp is offering the screening for only $25 which can be taken at one of the LabCorp medical labs located nearly everywhere in the country. If detected early enough, steps can be taken to deal with the prostate cancer effectively.

The Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a well=known cancer-fighting facility which aggressively treats cancer and nothing else. Cancer is their specialty and the not only use the traditional treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation but other less ordinary methods as well.

CTSA uses treatments such as acupuncture for pain, herbal medication, diet and nutrition, and other, sometimes experimental methods to treat cancer. They call it integrated treatment where the traditional methods of treatment are used along with other innovative approaches.

Personalities Herm Edwards, Bill Cowher, and Dick Vermeil spokesmen for the project, called Prostate Pep Talk. Edwards talks about friends who have been lost to prostate cancer and his father who had surgery for it. All men have to do is get screened on regular basis. Many men just put it off with disastrous results.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America has fully equipped hospitals in Philadelphia, Chicago, Phoenix, Tulsa, and Atlanta. People who have cancer can come for treatment and stay during their regimen along with their families. CTCA believes that cancer is an individualistic disease and that treatment has to be individualized. For this reason each patient receives an individual evaluation and treatment.
