Cancer is a word heard too often today.
That is why Fowler YMCA in next-door Peachtree Corners is fighting back against this disease with the American Cancer Society – by encouraging individuals between the ages of 30 and 65, who have never been diagnosed with cancer, to take part in the Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3).
To better understand ways to prevent cancer, the American Cancer Society is recruiting men and women across the United States for this research study that will help researchers better understand the lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer and will save lives.
As an enrollment location, the Fowler YMCA had over 100 staff, members and neighbors enroll in the study this week to help create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
