Do Your Part To Prevent Cancer!

This morning I went to the Huntsman Cancer Institute at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray to do my part to prevent cancer, and participate in a nationwide cancer study. My husband is doing his part by participating in Movember

The appointment took about 30 minutes max, and was simple and easy. I filled out an online questionairre ahead of time, filled out a small questionairre at my appointment, and had a simple blood draw. One lady even had her two small children with her; it was that easy of an appointment!

They are still looking for volunteers for this study. View the information below, or just stop by the Huntsman Cancer Institute at Intermountain Medical Center and go to the 2nd floor. There are also other enrollment sites across the state; view the information below.

Corporate blog post from the American Cancer Society:

This year, more than 575,000 people in the United States are expected to die from cancer.

Luckily, we have the power to help protect our children and future generations from the devastating effects of cancer.

Residents in the Salt City, Utah area can enroll today to be part of Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) that will take place November 13-17. The study helps researchers better understand the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that can cause or prevent cancer, which ultimately saves lives!

Enrolling in the study and helping to change the future face of cancer is easy:
·         A 30 minute interview and commitment to enroll
·         A blood draw
·         A survey

That’s it! From there, participants will receive periodic surveys asking for information about lifestyle, behaviors and other factors related to their health.

You can find the enrollment site closest to your area, and schedule your appointment by visiting www.cps3utah.org.

To be eligible for the study, you must:

  •  Be between the ages of 30 and 65
  • Have no personal history of cancer
  • Be willing to make a long term commitment to filling out periodic follow-up questionnaires
Please join us in enrolling to participate in CPS-3 and in sharing information about the study with your friends. Because, really, who doesn’t want to be able to say they helped eliminate cancer?
