Free Medical Checks and Early Diagnostics of Prostate Cancer in December
The software company Scalefocus provides over 80 prophylactic medical checks in Acibadem City Clinic Tokuda Hospital through the initiative IT Beards
The third edition of the IT Beards initiative of Scalefocus provides over 80 free prophylactic medical checks for early diagnostics of prostate cancer in men at risk ages. The charity campaign, part of Movember, was conducted throughout the month of November. Scalefocus created a special platform for the cause on which employees of the company published photos of their beards and moustaches, generating votes for their special vision.
The generated funds will be donated to Acibadem City Clinic Tokuda Hospital to conduct medical screening at the Clinic of Urology, led by Prof. Kaloyan Davidov. The checks will take place in December. Registrations could be made at phone: 02/403 4000.
The goal of the initiative is to provide timely access to specialized health assistance, as the prevention and early diagnostics of this malicious disease is of utmost importance for the course of its treatment. The prostate cancer can be cured if diagnosed on time. The disease has no symptoms, and if any appear, this usually happens at a late stage. The free medical checks are recommended for men over 50 years, or, in case of family history of the disease, over 45 years of age.
The gathered funds from the IT Beards campaign will be realized in partnership with Acibadem City Clinic Tokuda Hospital and the CancerCare.bg foundation.
‘Health is a matter of responsibility to yourself and to your family, to people whom you love and who love you. If we face a challenging situation, we should first try to accept it and then soundly assess what could be of help, instead of fighting against it, so that we can continue living a good life, as much as possible.’
