The Eddie Check Prostate Health Awareness Event has served the men of East Tennessee since 2004. It has provided thousands of free Prostate Specific Antigen or PSA blood tests to men over 40 years of age. One in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime and unfortunately 30,000 will die from it. Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths of men across the United States but if caught early the 5 year survival rate is nearly 100%. Go to for testing locations.
