Cheatham County Cancer Survivors Alliance

We are dedicated to providing support for Cheatham County families.

Our vision is a safe, healthy, drug free community.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

On July 1, 2020 CCCEC received a $10,000 award from the Tennessee Cancer Coalition to provide education and guidance for Cheatham County residents who have been diagnosed with cancer, and for their family members. The purpose of the funding is to offer two virtual town hall meetings and at least six virtual presentations to community organizations and faith communities over the coming year to provide education, information about resources, and to learn more from survivors about their needs. The Coalition has named the project Cheatham County Cancer Survivors Alliance (CCCSA).

This information will guide the CCCSA in determining steps we can take to improve information, resources and outcomes for cancer survivors in our county.
