Cheatham County Cancer Survivors Alliance
We are dedicated to providing support for Cheatham County families.
Our vision is a safe, healthy, drug free community.
On July 1, 2020 CCCEC received an 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).
CHEATHAM COUNTY VIRTUAL TOWN HALL MEETING DEC 3, 2020 from 7-8 p.m.
The Alliance is hosting its first virtual Town Hall on Dec. 3, 2020, from 7-8 p.m. The agenda includes information about the Alliance, the perspectives of Cheatham County cancer survivors and caregivers, a brief presentation and Q & A from Liz Winkler APRN, a Vanderbilt Medical Center nurse practitioner who specializes in cancer survivorship care, and a survey to get information from cancer survivors about their needs.

How you can help
The CCCSA team invite cancer survivors in Cheatham County to join the planning committee for this project. We hope to learn needs, resources and gaps in services and support available. This information will guide the CCCSA in determining steps we can take to improve information, resources and outcomes for cancer survivors in our county.
