How would you like to be a part of cancer research? The local Chapter of the American Cancer Society and Mercy Hospital Fort Smith has announced two dates in which you can enroll in a 30-year cancer prevention study.

Enrollment appointments are set for June 19 and 20 in Mercy’s Hennessy Room. The National Cancer Society Campaign to sign up 300,000 people will include an estimated 300 people locally.

“Anybody is allowed to participate between the ages of 30 and 65, never had cancer before, gender doesn’t matter, age has to fit in that bracket, nationality doesn’t matter either, said Scott Dorminy with the American Cancer Society.
