The Cancer Resource Guide of North Central Florida
 

One community fighting cancer

NCFCCC works together as one community to promote effective strategies for preventing and controlling cancer and providing support to cancer patients, survivors and caregivers in our region. As one of Florida’s five regional Cancer Control Collaboratives under the Department of Health's Florida Comprehensive Cancer Control Program, NCFCCC shares the goals and strategies of this statewide program. The program is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to support and coordinate comprehensive cancer control activities throughout the state.
