Less cancer, more birthdays

By Staff


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.

This year, you can join the movement to help create a world with less cancer and more birthdays by participating in and volunteering for the American Cancer Society’s research study Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3).

The American Cancer Society is recruiting men and women age 30-65 from across the U.S. who have never been diagnosed with cancer to enroll in the study. Enrollees will help scientists better understand how lifestyle, genetics and the environment affect cancer, and how better to prevent the disease.

Children’s Hospital Colorado will host a site from 6:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sept. 10 at 13123 E. 16th Ave., Aurora, in the Mt. Yale Conference Room.

The University of Colorado Cancer Center also will host sites, 8 a.m. to noon Sept. 12 and noon to 4 p.m. Sept. 13 on the sixth floor of Building 500, East Conference Room, on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus.
