You Can Help End Cancer

11Alive is committed to helping recruit those volunteers in honor of our loved ones and co-workers who have battled the disease and for our children's children to live in a cancer free world.

We're looking for 5,000 volunteers from Atlanta to take part in our generation's cancer prevention study and help researchers better understand the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that cause or prevent cancer.

The study is open to anyone who:
  • Is willing to make a long-term commitment to the study, which involves completing periodic follow-up surveys at home
  • Is between 30 and 65 years old
  • Has never been diagnosed with cancer (not including basal or squamous cell skin cancer)
