LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A once in a lifetime cancer prevention study may change how we detect and treat cancer all around the world.
Floyd Memorial Hospital, Baptist East Hospital and the Southern Indiana YMCA are registering as many volunteers as they can to participate in the American Society's Cancer Prevention Study titled CPS-3.
The ACS has a goal to register 300,000 people nationwide.
Enrolling a diverse population is as important as enrolling a large number of people. Stephanie Ferger with the ACS explained, "Taking a look at genetic, environmental and biological and lifestyle factors to find ways to hopefully prevent cancer all together so hopefully no on will ever have to hear the words you have cancer."
When looking at the death rate for all cancers combined, Kentucky is number one in the nation and Indiana is ranked number 36. For lung cancer, Kentucky again keeps the top spot, unfortunately Indiana moves up to number 12 in that ranking. To learn more about the study and how to register, click here.
