What if you could prevent even one family from hearing the words "You have cancer?"
What if you could help save lives from cancer and give people more of their most precious resource: time? More time with family and friends, to help create a world with more memories, more celebrations … and more birthdays.
This year, you can join the movement to help create a world with less cancer and more birthdays by enrolling in the American Cancer Society’s research study called Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3).
Who can join the study?
The study is open to anyone in the United States and Puerto Rico who is willing to commit to the study long term, is between the ages of 30 and 65, and has never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer).
How can you participate?
The enrollment process involves two steps. One step takes place at a local enrollment event, where you will be asked to read and sign an informed consent form, complete a brief written survey, and give a small blood sample (similar to a doctor’s visit – 7 teaspoons total). The blood sample will be drawn by a trained, certified phlebotomist.
The other step takes place at home, where you will complete a more detailed survey. This survey will ask for information on lifestyle, behavioral, and other factors related to your health. Periodically, you will receive a survey at home to update that information.
Enrollment will take place at the following locations:
Anderson Regional Medical Center
May 15: 12:00 - 8:00 p.m. Health and Fitness Auditorium
May 17: 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. Cancer Center
May 18: 7:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Cancer Center
Mississippi Power Auditorium
May 16: 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
