With big name former NFL players and the reputation of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America combining for the Prostate Prep Talk campaign, expect big things to happen. These organizations along with the help of Labcorp are joining together to provide free prostate screening. The Cancer Treatment Centers of America predicts that one in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and they predict that over 100,00’s men will be newly diagnosed in 2017. These collaboration with the NFLA and Labcorp, is to try and catch men with the cancer early and start treatment. Using former NFL players to draw men to the centers around the country and to raise awareness about the deadly cancer. Men can go to the events that will be in cities like Atlanta and Chicago or go to any of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America to get their free prostate screenings. Screenings are free until each center or event reaches 2,000 men and after that the cost is $25.00 which is still a discounted price.
Richard J Stephenson was not pleased with the treatment that was provide for his mother who was diagnosed with cancer. So, this inspired him to create treatments centers that specialized in the treatment of cancer patients and also has been involved with the screening process. The Cancer Treatment Centers of America was created by Stephenson in 1988 and now has grown to five regional locations throughout the United States. They have recently opened a office in Mexico City and frequently take in international patients from around the world including places like the Middle East. Cancer patients can receive treatment from their five treatment centers in Illinois , Georgia, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Arizona. The Cancer Treatment Centers use advanced treatments to assist and save their patients as well.
Vegans everywhere are jumping for joy at the launch of the EOS Crystal Lip Balm Collection. These two lip balms will be the first to not contain beeswax, a no-no ingredient for vegans. EOS really upped its game with the Crystal line by adding some wonderful natural oils. Among these oils are Vitamin E, Aloe, Avacado Oil and Coconut Oil.
The EOS Crystal gets its name from the fact that they are the very first lip balms to be completely clear (crystal clear). There are completely transparent. The addition of the essential oils gives them a slight shine and they are incredibly nourishing for your lips. EOS has also very slightly changed the shape of the balm inside the sphere. It now contains the slighted of angles. The angle is designed to give fans a more precise application process. The idea is that as you use the angle it will shift, allowing for continued precision over the lifetime of your EOS.
The Crystals only come in two flavors: Hibiscus Peach and Vanilla Orchid. I have tried both flavors and they are both incredible, although very different. The Hibiscus Peach has a bit of a tropical feel, while the Vanilla Orchid reminds me of a spring breeze in a meadow. Both are seen here on imabeautygeek.com.
EOS started as a disruptor in the lip balm industry. Before EOS came about lip balm was incredibly boring and tasted the way I always imagined antibiotic ointment to taste. What few flavors were available were often so overpowering you could smell it as soon as someone walked in a room, check this out!
Fans of EOS will also be happy to hear that the company’s Holilday Collection is once again available online. Each year EOS delights fans with wonderful holiday flavors. These little gems have become my stocking gift of choice and are always raved about by the recipient!
