Vision

Eliminate the cancer burden in Colorado

Mission

To engage, facilitate, expand and strengthen the statewide network dedicated to improving Colorado lives touched by cancer.

Who is the CCC?

We are the statewide, bi-partisan, multidisciplinary, coalition providing education, networking, best practice sharing, and partnership opportunities for those working in oncology care and support. We are committed to providing a neutral space for dialogue from diverse perspectives to further improve cancer outcomes in Colorado. 

In addition, we support the needs of Coloradans to prevent cancer, detect cancer early, and enhance quality of life for survivors and their caregivers by disseminating education, cancer resources, and connecting patients and their caregivers to opportunities to advocate for better cancer outcomes in Colorado.
