Austintown to host CPS-3 cancer research event

Posted: Updated:

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio - Relay for Life is giving the community a rare opportunity to personally participate in cancer research.

The Austintown Relay will host the American Cancer Society's Cancer Prevention Study-3, or CPS-3, on Friday at 5:30 p.m. in the Fitch High School gymnasium.

The event is for people ages 30 to 65 with no previous cancer diagnosis to be a part of a worldwide research and fundraising effort.

Participants must be willing to make a 20 to 30 year commitment, which involves follow-up surveys from home.

The American Cancer Society's Epidemiology Research Program is conducting the study across the United States, but each area is getting involved individually as a "grassroots" effort.

The ultimate goal is to enroll 300,000 adults from various racial and ethnic backgrounds.
