Most of us know someone touched by cancer. I personally know four: two of my best friends, one of my sister’s best friends, and a former work colleague. All are cancer survivors due to the dedicated work of researchers.
The Cancer Council is undertaking a major study and needs your participation. Help your family and friends by helping the Cancer Council. I’ve participated. It is really easy.
Please consider helping.
I am very pleased to be granted permission to publish the Cancer Council’s invitation letter.
You don’t have to have cancer to fight cancer!
Cancer Council’s Australian Breakthrough Cancer Study aims to recruit one of the largest Australian research groups ever to help scientists uncover new risk factors for cancer and other diseases.
We need 50,000 Australians to help us to investigate how our genes, lifestyle and environment affect the development and treatment of cancer and other diseases. We will build a large set of health related information essential for making breakthroughs in disease prevention and treatment.
You can take part if you are:
The study has been designed so that you can take part at your convenience. Questionnaires are completed online. As we will need a sample of your saliva for genetic analyses, a saliva collection kit will be mailed to you, which you return to us by free post.
