Lori Hamilton, Wife of NASCAR Legend Bobby Hamilton, Urges Public to Attend Free Cancer Screenings During Oral, Head & Neck Cancer Awareness Week (OHANCAW)
Date:4/8/2009

Free oral cancer screenings also being held at select NASCAR races this year

CHARLESTON, S.C., April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second year in a row, Lori Hamilton, wife of late NASCAR racing legend Bobby Hamilton, is urging Americans to get screened for cancer during the 2009 Oral, Head & Neck Cancer Awareness Week (OHANCAW), being held nationwide April 27 - May 3. In addition to the more than 150 sites nationwide that annually offer free oral, head and neck cancer screenings during OHANCAW, screenings also are being offered at select NASCAR races this year, including the Allstate 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 26, 2009. Further information about the free screenings can be found at www.OHANCAW.com.

According to the American Cancer Society, last year an estimated 35,300 Americans were diagnosed with cancers of the head and neck -- which include cancers of the oral cavity, larynx and pharynx -- and about 7,600 died from the disease. Bobby Hamilton, the 2004 Craftsman Truck Series champion and four-time winner of the Cup series, died in January of 2007 at the age of 49 from complications of head and neck cancer.

"Bobby's diagnosis hit us hard out of left field. After learning so much about the disease we became huge advocates of early detection and real believers in the screening process," said Lori Hamilton. "It is my honor to continue this effort in his name because we've made so much progress with past years' screenings. Bobby would want us to press forward to reach more people with our message. The screening is quick, painless and free, so we are encouraging everyone to take advantage of this opportunity that could save your life."

"When diagnosed early, oral and other head and neck cancers can be more easily treated without significant complications, and the chances of survival increase," said Terry
