Cancer research

To the Editor:

As an oncology nurse and American Cancer Society volunteer, I am pleased to share that the residents of Sheboygan County will have an unprecedented opportunity to participate in cancer research this Spring. Enrollment for the American Cancer Society’s third Cancer Prevention Study will be taking place in Sheboygan at St. Nicholas Hospital and the Aurora Sheboygan Clinic in May. You can see all the locations and times of enrollment by visiting

Individuals between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer and are willing to make a long-term commitment to the study are encouraged to sign up. Those who choose to enroll will simply fill out a comprehensive survey packet about health history, provide a small blood sample (to be collected by trained phlebotomists) and provide a waist measure. Participants will periodically be sent a follow-up questionnaire for the next 20 to 30 years.

CPS-3 follows the Society’s previous two studies that made the definitive link between smoking and lung cancer, and obesity and cancer. This new study is expected to produce the same kinds of lifesaving information. CPS-3 will help researchers better understand the lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer. We need to finish the fight against cancer and CPS-3 will help us do that.
