(GANNETT) -- If you've ever known someone with cancer, you know that birthdays are a very significant milestone.
There are nearly 13.7 million people in America who have survived cancer and countless more who have avoided it - who will be celebrating birthdays this year.
You can join the movement for more birthdays and fight back against cancer by enrolling in a new research study called the Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3).
The American Cancer Society's Epidemiology Research Program is inviting men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 years who have no personal history of cancer to join this historic research study. The ultimate goal is to enroll at least 300,000 adults from various racial and ethnic backgrounds from across the U.S.
By joining CPS-3, you can help us understand how to prevent cancer, which will save lives and give people more of their most precious resource - time. More time with their families and friends, more memories, more celebrations and more birthdays.
