We’ve gathered cancer resources from the State of Texas and beyond. From tips for screening and early detection to a list of partners in cancer control, we’ve compiled links and documents to help reduce the impact of cancer.
The mission of the Cancer Alliance of Texas (CAT) is to engage organizations, agencies, institutions and individuals to work collaboratively to reduce the impact of cancer in Texas and promote the Texas Cancer Plan.
The aim of CAT is to advance cooperative efforts that focus on the goals of theTexas Cancer Plan: Primary Prevention and Risk Reduction, Screening and Early Detection, Diagnosis, Treatment and Palliation, Quality of Life and Survivorship, Infrastructure, and Research and Commercialization.
CAT membership represents the many efforts underway to reduce the cancer burden in Texas and includes consumers as well as individuals who represent public and private educational, treatment, research and patient support organizations.
Our objective is to engage organizations, agencies and institutions and individuals in collaboration to reduce the impact of cancer. Check out our event schedule and plan to join us at our next meeting.
I was really impressed by the diversity and commitment of the group to the cause.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to have joined CAT, as it is an excellent mechanism with which to partner, network, share lessons learned, and most importantly help those we serve.
