Austintown's Relay for Life participants help fight cancer in more than one way

Posted: Updated:

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio - Walkers at the Relay for Life in Austintown will have the opportunity to help fight cancer in more than one way on Friday. 

 Besides the walk, which will take place at Austintown Fitch High School, participants can participate in an American Cancer Society research study which is only being offered in select cities across the country. 

Researchers conducting the Cancer Prevention Study-3, or CPS-3, are hoping to understand the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that cause or prevent cancer. 

To be eligible, you must be between the ages of 30 and 65 and have never been diagnosed with cancer, with the exception of basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer. 

You also have to be willing to make a 20 year commitment.  You will complete surveys at home as follow up to the study. 

To sign up, you must stop by the CPS-3 tent between 5:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on Friday at the high school.  No pre-registration is required, but it will take about 30 minutes to complete a survey, waist measurement and a blood sample.
