North Central Florida Cancer Control Collaborative
Did you know that the highest cancer mortality rates in Florida are concentrated in the North Central Florida region? Improving access to cancer care and reducing the burden of cancer on residents in the region is the primary purpose of the North Central Florida Cancer Control Collaborative (NCFCCC).
Members of NCFCCC include safety net healthcare facilities (i.e., Federally-Qualified Health Centers, county health departments, rural health clinics), primary care practices, hospices, hospitals, government agencies and a variety of community stakeholder groups.
Through online training presentations, successful grant applications, regional cancer data, and The Cancer Resource Guide of North Central Florida, NCFCCC supports the region’s cancer community with resources, networking opportunities and education.
The Cancer Resource Guide of North Central Florida
Compiled by WellFlorida Council and NCFCCC, The Cancer Resource Guide of North Central Florida lists support groups, community and caregiver resources, financial support services and tobacco cessation activities throughout the region. Organizations are encouraged to log on to the site and post their cancer related resources to share with the community. Healthcare professionals and cancer patients, survivors and caregivers will find helpful resources such as summer camps for children with cancer; sources for breast prosthesis and wigs; and medical assistance for individuals who are uninsured or under-insured, including low cost/no cost mammograms. Locate resources for these needs and more on the website www.CancerResourceGuideNCF.org.
