In PR Newswires’ article “The National Football League Alumni Association, Cancer Treatment Centers of America and LabCorp Team Up to Offer Prostate Cancer Screenings Starting in September”, they talk about prostate cancer, who it affects, and what the National Football League is doing to help. Prostate cancer affects more men than people realize. Men who are forty and over are considered to be at a higher risk than younger men. The National Football Leagues of America, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, and LabCorp are coming together to make this event possible by making men aware of what risks they’re at and what they can do to prevent themselves from prostate cancer. Their goal is to make men aware and teach them about attending screenings more often and where they can be screened for free or at a discounted price. The studies show that one in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and that African Americans are seventy percent more likely to develop prostate cancer than others. They held campaign events in Atlanta, Chicago, Phoenix, and Tusla about prostate cancer in hope to raise awareness on the issue.
