Volunteer Today For a Cancer-Free Tomorrow.


Madison YMCA: 111 Kings Rd. Madison, NJ 07940

What if you could prevent even one family from hearing the words “you have cancer”?

This year, you can join the movement to help create a world with less cancer and more birthdays by enrolling in the American Cancer Society’s research study called Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3).

Who can join the study?
The study is open to anyone in the United States and Puerto Rico who is willing to commit to the study long-term which means completing periodic follow up surveys at home for the next 20-30 years, is between 30 and 65 years old, and has never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer)

How can you participate?
The enrollment process involves two steps. One step takes place at a local enrollment event, where you will be asked to read and sign an informed consent form, complete a brief written survey, provide a waist circumference measurement and a small blood sample (similar to a doctor’s visit - 7 teaspoons total). The blood sample will be taken by a certified, trained phlebotomist.

The other step takes place at home, where you will complete a more detailed survey. This survey will ask information on lifestyle, behavioral, and other factors related to your health.

Periodically, you will receive a survey at home to update that information.

Local enrollment is being made possible in partnership with the Madison Area YMCA.
