Rockford Relay to host landmark research project

by MICHAEL S. SHIBLER, Ph.D.

Superintendent of Schools

What if you could personally participate in research to help determine factors that cause or prevent cancer? And what if your involvement ultimately leads to eliminating cancer as a major health problem for this and future generations?

Would you do it?

If your answer is yes, please consider participating in an unprecedented opportunity by enrolling in CPS-3 (Cancer Prevention Study-3) at this year’s Relay For Life in Rockford. Our Relay has been selected to enroll participants in the American Cancer Society’s third research study (the first study started back in 1950 and contributed to linking several factors such as cigarette smoking, obesity, and air pollution to cancer risk). 

Enrollment in CPS-3 will take place on Friday, May 15, 2009 from 4 to 9 p.m., at the Rockford Relay For Life at North Rockford Middle School. To see if
you are eligible to participate and what is involved, please go to www.cancer.org/cps3, or for more information please contact Kyle Cutler at kyle.cutler@cancer.org or 616-551-4035.

Please join me, enroll in CPS-3 on May 15

If you are unable to participate in the study, please consider forwarding this to family and friends who may be willing to participate. Enrollees do not have to be on a Relay For Life team
