Alberta Health Needs More Volunteers To "Count Me In 4 Tomorrow"

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: More volunteers are needed for a research project that is designed to determine the link between lifestyle and cancer.


The Tomorrow Project will have a local study centre set up at the Sandman hotel September 23rd to 26th. The long-term study is looking for individuals between the ages of 35 and 69 who have never been diagnosed with cancer.


From their sample they hope to indentify  why some develop cancer and others don't. Volunteers will take a health and lifestyle questionnaire and participate in routine tests, similar to a yearly physical, such as giving small amounts of urine, blood or saliva.

 

"It's really important that we build a solid base-line of information before we really get too deep into research. However, there has been some work that's already occurred . Our data has been used to help indentify different variations in regard to the breast cancer gene, to understand more about ovarian cancer and inflammatory bowel disease, which is a risk for bowel cancer." said Study Centre Coordinator, James Whitworth.



The Alberta-wide study needs about 50,000 residents to complete the project. Whitworth adds men are especially needed for the study.  To register, visit www.in4tomorrow.ca.
