(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) - Troon the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce that Troon-managed facilities will join the effort in fighting cancer by raising awareness about the importance of early detection.
Organized through Troon Drives H.O.P.E., which empowers Troon’s facilities and associates to make a positive impact on their communities, the effort is designed to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of prostate and breast cancer. The American Cancer Society reports that 77% of all cancers are diagnosed in those who are 55 years and older, making the message of early detection especially relevant to golf’s core demographic.
“Nearly everyone has found themselves faced with challenges brought on by cancer, whether battling it themselves or standing beside a friend or loved-one who has,” stated John Easterbrook, executive vice president, operations, Troon. “We believe this collective effort by Troon facilities will serve as a powerful reminder about the importance of detecting cancer before any symptoms are noticed.”
The American Cancer Society also claims that cancers found as a result of their symptoms are often larger and more likely to spread. Early detection exams can catch cancer before symptoms start, and are believed to save thousands of lives each year. Doctors believe that even more lives could be saved if more people took advantage of these exams.
