The Julie Rogers “Gift of Life” Program is currently accepting client applications for free prostate cancer blood test screenings for medically under-served men in Orange, Port Arthur and Beaumont.

The program will make available free prostate cancer blood test screenings for medically under-served eligible men on Saturday, June 4, at Baptist Orange Hospital from 9:00 am until 12:00 p.m. (appointments are required).

Screening participants will also consult with medical professionals to discuss good health practices and the “Gift of Life” will provide educational materials for the men and their families.

Through its continued partnership with Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas and the Baptist Cancer Center, the “Gift of Life” provides free blood test prostate cancer screenings for men who are at least 45 years of age (40 if African American or if there is a family history of prostate cancer), have limited income and are under-insured.

Screenings will also be available on Saturday, June 11, in Port Arthur (Lamar State College Port Arthur Carl Parker Center) and on Saturday, June 18, in Beaumont (Baptist Beaumont Hospital).
