Dear Friends, You can help save more lives from cancer.

Dear Friends,

Very few people in today's society haven't been affected in some way by cancer.  Whether they've been diagnosed themselves, supported a friend or family member as they fought the fight, or mourned the loss of a loved one, cancer is a common thread that nearly all of us share. 

As someone who feels as passionately as I do about seeing an end to cancer, the good news is that progress is being made. Thousands of communities have gone smoke free, more people have access to cancer screenings and treatments, and billions of dollars are being allotted to cancer research. However, more work is still needed.

You can help save more lives from cancer.
You can contribute to research whose purpose is to better understand the factors that cause or prevent cancer.
You can personally participate in research that ultimately eliminates cancer as a major health problem for this and future generations.
This coming year, select events throughout the country are giving individuals the unprecedented opportunity to participate in research in our local community. The American Cancer Society's Epidemiology Research Program will be enrolling participants for their newest research study, the Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3).
Individuals who are willing to make a long-term commitment to the study, which involves completing periodic follow-up surveys at home, are between the ages of 30-65, and who have never personally been diagnosed with cancer are eligible to enroll. Enrollment will take between 20-30 minutes. Once enrolled, a participant’s 20-30 year commitment to the study will involve completing mailed surveys every few years.
If you are unable to enroll, please be an advocate for Cancer Prevention Study-3. Encourage those close to you to take part in this potentially life-saving study in your honor. Spread the word to everyone you know and encourage them to enroll. The Cancer Prevention Study-3 will be enrolling 500,000 people at select events throughout the country over the next few years.
Please visit the Cancer Prevention Study-3 website for enrollment locations and additional information, or call toll free at 888-604-5888.
Thank you for sharing in the fight to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
