If you've ever known someone with cancer, you know how important - how urgent - advances in cancer research can be to survivors and the people who love them.
Thanks to research conducted by the American Cancer Society, thousands of communities have gone smoke free, more people have access to cancer screenings and billions of dollars are being allotted to cancer research.
But more work is still needed.
What if I told you that you – yes, you - could help find a cure for cancer in your lifetime? That you could make a difference in the fight against cancer, not just for yourself but for your children and grandchildren?
Well, now anyone between the ages of 30 and 65 who has never been diagnosed with cancer is eligible to become a part of a special study of a thousand people right here in West Texas.
Enrollment is free and will take less than 30 minutes. Once enrolled, the study will only involve completing surveys mailed to your home every few years.
Go to this link right now to find out how you can join the ACS Prevention Study Number 3 to help find a cure for cancer. There are 7 enrollment events in Lubbock between September 6 and September 28. Future generations will thank you for it.
