Tennessee Cancer Coalition

Mission Statement:  To measurably reduce the burden of cancer for Tennesseans.

The Tennessee Cancer Coalition, or TC2, is a dynamic group formed in October 2003. Members of the TC2 are divided into seven regional coalitions and represent organizations such as, state government  agencies, hospitals, colleges/universities, faith-based organizations, and insurance companies to name a few. The regional coalitions are tasked with the implementation of objectives and strategies in the state cancer plan. Activities within each coalition are divided into sections of the state and are aligned to each region’s specific cancer priority. Membership is free and open to anyone interested in helping reduce the burden of cancer in the Volunteer State.  Join us!
