Letter: Residents can take part in cancer study

Published: Friday, April 26, 2013 11:26 a.m. CST

To the Editor: What if we could personally participate in research that might help determine factors that cause or prevent cancer?

What if our involvement, and that research, ultimately leads to the elimination of cancer as a major health problem for this and future generations?

What if we could make it so just one family never has to hear the words, "you have cancer"?

Residents of our community have an unprecedented opportunity to participate in cancer research this year. Enrollment for the American Cancer Society's third cancer prevention study will be taking place in the western Chicago suburbs through April 26.

Individuals between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer and are willing to make a long-term commitment to the study are encouraged to sign up. Participants will periodically be sent a follow-up questionnaire for the next 20 to 30 years.

If you aren't eligible to participate, you can still make a difference by telling everyone you know about Cancer Prevention Study-3. For more information, visit cancer.org/cps3, email cps3@cancer.org or call 888-604-5888.
