The goal here is to get as many men aged forty and older signed up for prostate cancer screening. for the first two-thousand men who sign up, they ill get a free prostate cancer screening courtesy of LabCorp. If men still want to get checked and the slots are full the price for the exam is only twenty-five dollars per exam.The NFLAA has teamed up with these organizations to spread the word about prostate awareness.

Former coaches like Herm Edwards, Bill Cowher, and Dick Vermeil want to encourage men to get tested. They are doing this through public service announcements and a program called Prostate Pep Talk. It is aimed to help men take the health of their prostates more seriously.With the team of Cancer Treatment Centers of America, the NFLPAA, and LabCorp treatments for prostate cancer are receiving the coverage and awareness that it long deserves. Even at a cost of twenty-five dollars, it is definitely worth the cost to save a mans life. All of these organizations wouldn’t have it any other way.
