National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship
The National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship is a public policy nonprofit advocating that the individual needs of patients must be front and center in the delivery of cancer care. Founded by and for cancer survivors in 1986, NCCS created the widely accepted definition of survivorship and considers someone a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis through the balance of life. NCCS champions policies to improve every phase of cancer care to promote a system that is survivor-focused, evidence-based, quality-driven, affordable and accessible. Combined with efforts to empower and inform patients, such a system will ensure that cancer care is the best possible for survivors, from the time of their diagnosis onward, and for their loved ones.
