The comprehensive approach to cancer control is an emerging strategy that seeks to ensure that all of our state's cancer fighting organizations - from state government programs to non-profit organizations - are working together to fight cancer in every community on all fronts, from prevention and early detection to treatment, quality of life and end-of-life care.
The West Virginia Comprehensive Cancer Program works to increase coordination and cooperation between cancer control organizations and programs throughout the state. By joining forces our goal is to increase access to cancer information and resources while promoting awareness and education.
The West Virginia Comprehensive Cancer Program was awarded funds by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through a five year cooperative agreement with the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.
West Virginia's Comprehensive Cancer Control Program is one of 65 states, tribes, and territories funded for comprehensive cancer control activities. With these funds, the Program funds the operation and facilitation of a statewide cancer coalition, Mountains of Hope, as well as colorectal, ovarian, and prostate cancer initiatives.
