The American Cancer Society is inviting residents of Essex County to make a difference in the fight against cancer. The third phase of our cancer prevention study, “CPS-3” is an extremely simple way to make a huge impact in this ongoing battle.

CPS-3 is an unprecedented opportunity for individuals to personally participate in research that may determine factors that cause or prevent cancer.  This research will ultimately lead to the elimination of cancer as a major health problem for this and future generations.

Anyone 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. Those who choose to enroll will simply fill out a survey about health history, provide a small blood sample (collected by trained phlebotomists) and provide a waist measurement.  Participants will periodically be sent a follow-up questionnaire for the next 20 to 30 years.

Enrollment for the American Cancer Society’s third Cancer Prevention Study will be taking place in Newark from Oct. 21st through Oct. 28th at Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk at Military Park, Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, Newark YMWCA, St. James AME Church, St. Michael’s Medical Center and UMDNJ/ NJMS-UH. Exact times and locations can be viewed by visiting the web at www.cps3newark.org .

If you are a cancer survivor, or if you aren’t eligible to participate, you can still make a difference by telling everyone you know about CPS-3.

To learn more about CPS-3 “research today for a cancer-free tomorrow”, visit www.cancer.org/cps3 , email cps3@cancer.org or call the American Cancer Society toll-free 1-888-604-5888.
