TOLEDO, Ohio -

You can help in the never ending search for a cure.

The American Cancer society is hoping to recruit at least 800 people in the Greater Toledo area that have never had cancer and between the ages of 30 and 65  to take part in a cancer prevention study. The organization is hoping to change the face of cancer for future generations.

"What are the things that we're doing in our lives now that could be increasing our lives to get cancer or decreasing our chances of getting cancer," says Andrew Mariani with ACS.

If you would like to enroll visit ToledoCPS3.org or call 1-888-604-5888
