Making Strides

The American Cancer Society is looking for at least 5,000 Metro Atlanta adults who want to make a direct impact in the fight against cancer. In partnership with the YMCA, Atlanta, GA has been selected as one of a limited number of communities nationwide where people can enroll in the Cancer Prevention Study-3.

The goal of CPS-3 is to better understand the factors (lifestyle, environmental, genetic) that cause or prevent cancer and, ultimately, to help eliminate cancer as a major health concern for future generations.

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, participants will receive periodic follow-up surveys and research updates through annual newsletters.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed's has prepared a PSA for CPS-3 that we encourage you to share with your family, friends, co workers and place of worship.

For more information or to enroll, please visit or call me (CJ) directly at 404-949-6474
I'm in - what about you?? 

Thank you so much, I believe that we can all work together to eliminate cancer as a major health issue for future generations.
As always trying to bring you information that is current and able to help everyone.
