What people are saying about CPS-3:
My mom is a two-time cancer survivor, and I'm doing everything I can to make sure my children don't ever have to say that…I really, really believe this is part of the answer.
My mom died this year of cancer. I would like to help prevent cancer in the future and help research.
My father died of cancer. I believe it is so important to do as much as we can to prevent cancer and find cures.
I'm really happy to enroll having just lost my dad and knowing that because of research like this my sister is doing better. I really see a huge importance in it.
We're all in this together and every one of us has a chance to get cancer at some point in our lifetime…so if we can all contribute something and be a part of the search for a cure, all the better.
I lost my aunt to cancer. For the last few months I have been trying to figure out a way to honor her memory. This is best way I can honor her memory.
My family has been devastatingly hurt by cancer and I would like to help in any way.
I am interested in participating in the study. We donate what we can to the fight against cancer. I think being part of your study would be meaningful and interesting.
I have friends who have just been diagnosed and I would like to do something to push research forward.
I have lost several people close to me from cancer, and I'd like to do something to contribute to the body of knowledge to fight this disease.
