CPS-3 Enrollment in Jefferson City Exceeds Expectations

Craig Boring presents a plaque to the Goldschmidt Cancer Center for hosting the three-day enrollment for CPS-3

An amazing partnership with Capital Region Medical Center’s Goldschmidt Cancer Center and the American Cancer Society shattered expectations last week enrolling 374 participants into the Cancer Prevention Study-3. More than 40 people walked in without an appointment over the three days of enrollment in Jefferson City, Mo., proving that word of mouth increases participation.

CPS-3 is a grassroots effort where local communities from across the country can support cancer research by participating actively in this historic research study. The goal of CPS-3 is to better understand the factors (lifestyle, environmental, genetic) that cause or prevent cancer and, ultimately, to help eliminate cancer as a major health concern for future generations.

Many thanks to the staff of Goldschmidt Cancer Center for opening their doors, to the volunteer planning committee and CPS-3 Champions for all of their hard with planning and recruitment, and to our Society staff for executing a successful event.

The American Cancer Society’s 2010 Missouri Lobby Day is going to be held on Wednesday March 31st at the Capitol Plaza Hotel, 415 West McCarty, Jefferson City, MO. The day will begin at 9:15 a.m. and will conclude at 3:00 p.m.

The ACS Lobby Day provides individuals a chance to make an impact on the lives of all Missourians, while learning more about how the government works. Missourians will have the opportunity to meet legislatures and share their story with them, while voicing their opinions on bills that matter to Cancer Advocates.

The day will begin with a morning briefing, and then everyone will walk to the Capitol for a meeting with the legislatures. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided throughout the day.

The ACS Lobby Day is one way ordinary people use extraordinary power to make cancer a state priority.  Please come out and use YOUR VOICE to tell YOUR STORY, and the stories of those lost.

Go to http://www.acscan.org/mo and look for the “American Cancer Society Missouri Lobby Day” link in the Missouri Calendar section of the site.  This will provide you with a link to register on-line.

Please join us as we celebrate our achievements in the fight against cancer and remember those who have lost their battle with cancer by attending the 2010 Missouri Lobby Day.  Help us fight back by continuing to advocate for those affected by cancer. YOU CAN make a difference.

An agenda for the day as well as additional information will be sent prior to the event. For immediate questions, please contact Missouri Grassroots Director Tim Freeman at (573) 443-0979 or tim.freeman@cancer.org

Thank you for joining our efforts to create a world with more birthdays!
