Just like 2 major studies have revealed new light on what causes cancer and how to prevent it, the effort continues to find 300,000 people who will join the 3rd study.
The ultimate goal of the American Cancer Society is to create a cancer free world.
Dr. Barbara Pence, a pathologist at Texas Tech says it's easy to volunteer, and the rewards could be great.
"We've already recruited 260,000 people for CPS-3, we're trying to get another 550 people from the Lubbock area, this is our chance as West Texans to participate in an important cancer study," says Dr. Pence.>
