In 2003, the CCA began as an alliance of volunteers, becoming formally chartered and incorporated in 2008. In 2009 the CCA achieved a tax-exempt status under 501 (c)(3), and since then has provided direct financial assistance, nutritional supplements and other personal needs, as well as certain types of medical equipment such as hospital beds, wheelchairs, and oxygen concentrators prescribed by a locally licensed physicians to qualifying clients in the CNMI who are receiving treatment for cancer.
The CCA also facilitates monthly cancer survivors and caregiver support group meetings, engages in a variety of awareness and outreach activities, and has produced various educational publications such as brochures, fliers, videos and DVD’s for our diverse community. Awareness activities and events related to cervical cancer, oral cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and lung and pancreatic cancer awareness, are just a few of the annual educational and outreach activities carried out by the CCA. The CCA also engages in programs such as early screening and detection, and patient navigation. The CCA has formed critical partnerships with all seven of the CNMI’s dental clinics, in order to provide free oral cancer screening for all ages.
The CCA extends thanks to all of its partners, donors and individuals who contribute to the successful programs of the association. The public is encouraged to learn about our programs and contribute to the very important and worthwhile work of the CCA.
