ALBANY, N.Y. -- This week will be your last chance to take part in a historic study in the fight against cancer. The study, called Cancer Prevention 3, started back in 2006.

The American Cancer Society tracks men and women across the country that have no personal history of cancer. Questionnaires are then used to determine what lifestyle, environment and genetic factors might affect the disease.

Health leaders say it is an amazing opportunity to be a part of history.

"We are looking at behavioral, environmental and life style changes that can impact cancer. This is our CPS-3 study. We have done this study in the past. The first one alone was responsible for the link between tobacco and cancer," said Danielle Heller, Community Mission Manager for the American cancer Society.

If you are between 30 and 65 years of age and want to participate in the study, the last screening will be Friday at Samaritan hospital. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
