CANCER PREVENTION STUDY-3


ENROLLMENT WILL TAKE PLACE AT VARIOUS TIMES AND LOCATIONS ON OCTOBER 23 - 25 and 27. SCHEDULE AND LOCATION DETAIL ON REVERSE.

What if you could prevent even one family from hearing the words you have cancer?
This year you can fight back against cancer by enrolling in the America Cancer Societys new research study called the Cancer Prevention Study (CPS-3). By joining CPS-3, you can help researchers better understand the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that cause or prevent cancer, which ultimately save lives.

Who can join the study?


The study is open to anyone who: Is willing to make a long-term commitment to the study, which means completing periodic follow-up surveys at home for the next 20-30 years Is between 30 and 65 years old Has never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer)

ENROLLMENT IS BEING BROUGHT TO THE CEDAR RAPIDS AREA IN PARTNERSHIP WITH CEDAR RAPIDS METRO YMCA, ST. LUKES HOSPITAL, HELEN G. NASSIF COMMUNITY CANCER CENTER and MERCY MEDICAL CENTERS HALLPERRINE CANCER CENTER For more information, visit cancer.org/cps3 or call toll free at 1-888-604-5888

How can you participate?


Participation is easy. Your initial enrollment requires two steps and will involve the following: After scheduling your enrollment appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions to go online and complete your first, most comprehensive survey. This survey will ask you questions regarding medications you are taking, family history of cancer, lifestyle and other behaviors and will take approximately 45 60 minutes to complete. At your appointment, you will be asked to sign an informed consent form, complete a brief survey, provide a waist circumference measurement and a small blood sample (similar to a doctors visit). The blood sample will be taken by a certified, trained phlebotomist. Your appointment should last approximately 20 30 minutes. To schedule your appointment, visit www.cps3cedarrapids.org

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.

If you have ever had a friend or


family member diagnosed with cancer, one of the hardest things is feeling like we cant do anything to help. CPS-3 is something we can do to help in the fight against this disease. Study participant
