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 which means completing periodic follow up surveys at home for the next 20-30 years, is between 30 and 65 years old, and has never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer).

Enrollment appointments are taking place at the South Georgia Medical Center (Pearlman Cancer Center) on Tuesday, September 10, 2013, from 2:00 p.m. until 6:30 p.m., and at Wiregrass Technical College (Brooks Hall) on September 11, 2013, from 7:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.

A one-page information sheet about this program is available online here.
