Ed Randall's Fans for the Cure is proud to announce it will again offer complimentary PSA screenings to the entire baseball community assembling for the Baseball Winter Meetings at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville.
The testing will take place from 1-5PM on Tuesday, December 4, 2012 inside the trade show. The organization's baseball subsidiary, Ed Randall's Bat for the Cure, is an Official Homegrown Charity of Minor League Baseball, part of MiLB's Charity Partners Program.
The Department of Urologic Surgery at Vanderbilt University, under the direction of Dr. Joseph Smith, will provide this service.
“One in six men will get prostate cancer, but if caught early, nearly 100% survive. African American men have an even higher risk: one in four men. Early prostate cancer has no symptoms – that’s why screening is so important. We strongly urge all men 40 years of age or older to take advantage of this simple blood test that can save their lives, as it did mine,” notes Randall, founder of the charity.
“Our universal mission, through the world of sports and athletes, is to increase the awareness of prostate cancer in men and educate them and the people who love them. To that end, we have spread our twin gospels about prostate cancer awareness and education since 2007 at Minor League Baseball ballparks across the country staffed by hundreds of dedicated volunteers.”
