The American Cancer Society is seeking people across the nation who want to make a direct impact in the fight against cancer. The Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) will pave the way for the next generation of cancer research.
The City of Mission Viejo has teamed up with the American Cancer Society in the battle against the disease by hosting enrollment for folks interested in participating in this lifesaving study from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on October 25 and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on October 27 at the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center, 24932 Veterans Way.
The primary focus of CPS-3 is to better understand the lifestyle, environmental, and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer and, ultimately, to help eliminate cancer as a major health concern for future generations. Folks willing to make a 20-to-30-year commitment to the study who are between 30 and 65 and have never been diagnosed with cancer (excluding basal cell and squamous cell skin cancer) may qualify. Although this is a long study, the time commitment is small, and once enrolled the study just requires participants to complete surveys every couple of years. To enroll, visit CPS3OC.org or call 1-888-604-5888. Appointments take about 20-30 minutes. Participating in this study is a chance to help the American Cancer Society understand what causes cancer and how to prevent it, so lives can be saved and a world with less cancer and more birthdays can exist.
