Central Georgians Asked to Help With Cancer Study

The American Cancer Society is asking for your help to volunteer for a new, nationwide cancer study. Bibb County ranks significantly higher than the state's average in cancer cases, and the American Cancer Society estimates close to 4000 people will be diagnosed with cancer in the county this year.

Mayor Robert Reichert and several other officials from Macon and Warner Robins pledged their support for the American Cancer Society's Cancer Prevention Study 3.

The study is the third in their Cancer Prevention Series and will help researchers understand lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer.

Anyone between the ages of 30-65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer can participate. The study requires a one-time blood sample and a lifetime commitment, but American Cancer Society's, Molly Herrin says it's easier than it sounds.
