Rickey Jackson knows what it takes to be a man. But it’s more than dominating a football field, winning a Super Bowl or earning his way into the NFL Hall of Fame.
Rickey knows being a man means taking care of yourself so you can take care of the people in your life. That’s why he – along with several other New Orleans Saints legends – is partnering with Tulane Health System to raise awareness of prostate cancer and provide FREE PSA screenings to any eligible men.
Meet and have pictures taken with former NFL players.
Attendees can also hear Rickey Jackson’s personal testimony about his prostate cancer diagnosis and recovery. Also, everyone who receives a PSA screening will be eligible to win a football signed by Rickey and other former Saints.
It is recommended that men with no family history of prostate cancer begin PSA screening at the age of 50. Men who have a first-degree relative (father, brother or son) diagnosed with prostate cancer should begin screening at age 40.

|Chuck Commiskey||Saints offensive lineman from 1986-1988, named to USFL All-League Team in 1984|
