Volunteer Today for a Cancer-Free Tomorrow

“If you have ever had a friend or family member diagnosed with cancer, one of the hardest things is feeling like we can’t do anything to help. CPS-3 is something we can do to help in the fight against this disease.”    

CPS - 3


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. One hundred years ago, the American Cancer Society began the fight of a lifetime – the fight to end cancer. Today, we’re determined to make this cancer’s last century. You can help finish the fight by enrolling in the American Cancer Society’s research study called Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3).
Help us finish the fight today. Volunteer for 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).
How can you participate?
The enrollment process involves two steps. One step takes place at a local enrollment event, where you will be asked to read and sign an informed consent form, complete a brief written survey, provide a waist circumference measurement and a small blood sample (similar to a doctor’s visit - 7 teaspoons total). The blood sample will be taken by a certified, trained phlebotomist.
The other step takes place at home, where you will complete a more detailed survey. This survey will ask information on lifestyle, behavioral, and other factors related to your health.
Periodically, you will receive a survey at home to update that information.  Local enrollment is being made possible in North Central Indiana through various community partnerships. To see more detail on dates, times, and locations, visit: Cancer prevention study- 3 North Central Indiana
What else can you do?
Make sure to bring friends with you when you show up to change the world. And tell everyone you know about this historic opportunity to save lives and fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in your community.
