WHO: The American Cancer Society (ACS), and West Penn Allegheny Health System are looking for men and women who have no personal history of cancer to participate in a large research study that will shed light on risk factors for cancer. The ACS is aiming to recruit 300,000 adult participants between the ages of 30 and 65 into the study, including those from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds living throughout the United States.
WHAT: American Cancer Society’s – Cancer Prevention Study 3 (CPS3)

WHY: If you've ever known someone with cancer, you know that birthdays are a very significant milestone. There are nearly 14 million people in America who have survived cancer - and countless more who have avoided it - who will be celebrating birthdays this year. By joining CPS-3, you can help us understand how to prevent cancer, which will save lives and give people more of their most precious resource: time.  More time with their families and friends, more memories, more celebrations . . . and more birthdays.
