American Cancer Society Seeks 1000 Area Residents To Particpate In Study

The American Cancer Society needs people age 30 - 65 who have never had cancer for a nationwide study about who does and doesn't get cancer, and why.  Michael Edward Miller spoke with Kara Neloms, Communications and Marketing Associate Director, Mission Support, about the study.

It's huge--up to half a million people from around the United States are expected to join.  The American Cancer society wants a thousand of those participants to be from the Chattanooga area.  A kickoff event will take place at Olivet Baptist Church on Thursday, June 28th starting at 8:45 a.m.  More information is available by calling 423-499-2600 or e-mailing Kristi.Moore@cancer.org.  RSVPs are requested by June 27th.
