What is the MTCCC?
The MTCCC is a statewide collaborative effort of individuals and organizations working together to reduce the overall burden of cancer for Montanans, through the development and implementation of Montana's Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan. The MTCCC was formed in 2003 when concerned stakeholders from throughout Montana came together to address issues across the cancer continuum from prevention and early detection to survivorship. Utilizing a coordinated and integrated approach to controlling cancer, the MTCCC strives to ensure better quality of life and enhance the odds of survivorship through prevention, early detection and state-of-the-art cancer care.
The Montana Cancer Control Coalition (MTCCC) is implementing the second Montana Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan to guide our cancer control activities over the next 5 years. We welcome your input as professionals, survivors and Montanans in addressing 9 priority Objectives. These activities in Prevention, Early Detection and Screening, Treatment and Research, and Quality of Life and Survivorship will help us achieve our goals !
We use established best practices, comprehensive data, culturally sensitive materials and evidence-based strategies as we work together to attain our goals. This is a Statewide Cancer Control Plan and we are working together with our established Cancer Treatment Centers, Partners, and Communities to reduce the burden of cancer in Montana through these measurable priority Objectives.
