Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to prevent cancer and increase survival among the people of South Georgia. We accomplish this through community-based research, outreach, screening and education - all done with compassion and in collaboration with others who are concerned about cancer.
The Cancer Coalition's mission, projects and funding are all focused completely on South Georgia. We work to ensure more people learn about cancer and receive the services they need so fewer members of your family, friends and neighbors are affected by this frightening disease. We do this through our cancer screening program, education, outreach and research.
Our goal is to build a dynamic model for rural comprehensive cancer control, remove barriers and eliminate cancer disparities throughout the region.
Cancer is no stranger to most families in south Georgia. The Cancer Coalition of South Georgia provides a way for organizations to work together to better help people in the 32 counties that encompass our region. Our Coalition's efforts build upon the excellence of existing healthcare services in our region. We bring additional funding, expertise and opportunities so that southwest Georgians can receive the highest quality cancer services and also participate in cancer research close to home.
Our activities fill gaps by providing cancer resources that currently may not be available in our region. We partner with hospitals, public health departments, universities and community groups to give residents and healthcare professionals increased access to cancer prevention, screening, education, research and treatment.
Since its beginning in 2003, the Coalition has achieved remarkable results largely because of the drive and determination that our communities have for fighting cancer.
