The American Cancer Society is conducting a study to help determine possible causes and preventions of cancer. The Cancer Prevention Study-3 wants area men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 who have NEVER been diagnosed with cancer to participate. Community Manager and volunteer coordinator Brittney Essary tells KZIM-KSIM that this is a simple process. Just a quick survey, a measurement and small blood sample and you are on your way! The study will help researchers better understand the lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors. Enrollment will be from 2 to 6:30 p.m. May 9 at YMCA of Southeast Missouri, 511 Taylor St., Sikeston, but you need to make an appointment. For more information or to enroll, go to cancerstudymo.org or call 1-888-604-5888.
