Point of View Guest Editorial - Chad Boseker (3/1/13)
It's often far too easy to underestimate the importance of cancer research until you hear the words "you have cancer."
My name is Chad Boseker. I am a cancer survivor. And I am passionate about doing everything I can to help fight cancer so that my kids will never hear those dreaded words. One way our community can help make my wish a reality is by enrolling in the American Cancer Society's Cancer Prevention Study-3.
The goal of CPS-3 is to enroll men and women across the U.S. to participate in a study that will help researchers better understand the lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer and will save lives. Individuals between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer and who are willing to make a long-term commitment to the study will be able to enroll March 19-20 in Louisville and Southern Indiana. You can see the locations and times of enrollment by visiting cps3kyin.org.
I encourage all eligible men and women in our community to consider taking part in this important study. I also call on my fellow cancer survivors to spread the word by asking others to enroll in your honor. One person can make the difference in a new discovery about cancer that could prevent someone from hearing the words "you have cancer."
You can be that person. You can make a difference by enrolling in CPS-3.
I'm Chad Boseker, and that's my Point of View.
