100 Black Men offering cancer screening Sept. 14
The 100 Black Men of St. Mary, together with the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at Terrebonne General Medical Center, are offering free prostate and colorectal cancer screenings, Saturday Sept. 14 at Skinner’s Barber Shop, 1001 Railroad Ave in Morgan City.
Screenings are free if you have not been screened within the last 12 months. For those without insurance there will be no charge.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for all men,” Clarence Robinson Jr., president of the 100 Black Men of St. Mary said. “Roughly six years ago, these tests helped save someone’s life, as the cancer was just in the initial stages”
Mary Bird Perkins will be distributing free colorectal kits to both men and women, for them to take home and use.
Also, Teche Action Clinic will be on site conducting free blood pressure and glucose level checks.
