Join the St. Louis Rams this Saturday to be a part of cancer history

Wordpress_CPS3ad_blktextSt. Louis Rams Running Back Chase Reynolds, and his wife Kila, are encouraging St. Louisans to join their Rams family for a ground-breaking research effort this Saturday. Individuals can come to Rams Park in Earth City, First Baptist Church of Arnold, or Mineral Area College in Park Hills to join them in Cancer Prevention Study-3.

The American Cancer Society is specifically looking for individuals between the ages of 30-65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer and who are willing to make an easy, but long-term commitment to the study. Research will continue to reveal what causes and what prevents cancer.

In approximately 20 minutes time, individuals will take a survey, have their waist measured, and give a small blood sample similar to what is taken at a doctor’s office. Then every two years or so, a new survey will be mailed to them for follow-up.

You can change the face of cancer for future generations. Join us on Saturday, and learn more at http://www.cancerstudymo.org.

St. Louis Celebrates American Cancer Society Turning 100

This year the American Cancer Society marks its 100th birthday. In St. Louis, and cities across the country, cancer patients, survivors, volunteers, and corporate partners joined together to salute this major milestone.

We’re honored that more than 300 supporters took time out of their work day for our celebration on the American Cancer Society’s St. Louis campus. That’s 300 people who made noise and pledged to take action to finish the fight against cancer.

Today, two out of three people diagnosed with cancer are surviving. More than 400 people a day in the U.S. are celebrating birthdays that would have otherwise been lost to cancer. As the Official Sponsor of Birthdays ™, the American Cancer Society will continue to make noise by amplifying its efforts to ensure lifesaving cancer research gets funded; by making sure people facing cancer have the help they need, such as a free place to stay during treatment or a ride to get there; and by fighting for equal access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings, and clean air.

We want to sincerely thank all of the individuals and businesses who gave of their time, their talent, and their products in honor of our local 100th birthday celebration.
