SINT MAARTEN (CAY HILL) – The Positive and Elektralyets Foundation are glad to announce that Kooyman will host their second Prostate Cancer Awareness Registration Drive on Saturday September 21st from 10am to 2pm on the AJC Brouwers Road.
“Kooyman is happy to lend their support and help shine the spotlight on Prostate Cancer Awareness. A hardware store is typically a man’s domain, therefore we are happy to participate in the Prostate Cancer Registration Drive and offer our male customers, the opportunity and convenience of registering to “Man Up” and “Check Up” all while continuing to run their daily errands, said Marketing Officer, Evencia Carty-Seabrookes.
“We encourage all our male customers to come on down to Kooyman and join the registration drive, where you can learn more about Prostate Cancer, Shop, save time and possibly save lives.”
The team at Kooyman commends the SMMC, Elektralyets and the Positive Foundations for their tireless efforts to promote awareness of this cause. As a company we have encouraged all our male staff to “Man Up and Get Checked” and we do hope that other companies join us in doing the same as well.
Members of the St. Maarten Medical Center along with the Positive and Elektralyets Foundation are encouraging men between that ages for 45 – 70 who have never done a PSA test to register during this event. The SMMC has agreed to contribute the expertise to review the results of the PSA, a free consultation and perform a free ultrasound if necessary. However, the PSA test will have to be paid for at the lab or covered by insurance.
This September, The Positive and Elektralytes Foundations would like to get the men in our lives to talk about the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test with their doctor and make an informed decision about the best testing approach. “This September let’s turn awareness into action. Early detection is the key to saving lives through screenings like the Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) and the Digital Rectal Exam (DRE) which helps to identify prostate cancer in its earliest stages” concluded Shelly Alphonso and Mercedes “Eelektra” van de Waals-Wyatt, Presidents of the two foundations.
On September 22 at 7PM, the Christian Faith Ministries International Church in Dutch Quarter with be the host of a Man UP & Check UP Prostate Cancer Awareness Information session with guest speakers Dr. Ramos of the St. Maarten Medical Center and Dr. Rojas who will talk about erectile dysfunction. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend this free event.
