NCCS advocates for quality cancer care for all people touched by cancer and provides tools that empower people to advocate for themselves. Founded by and for cancer survivors, NCCS created the widely accepted definition of survivorship and defines someone as a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis and for the balance of life.

NCCS strongly believes in evidence-based advocacy that reflects the needs of all cancer survivors to effect policy change at the national level. By advocating for patient-centered, coordinated care through treatment planning and care planning, NCCS is ensuring cancer survivorship remains at the center of healthcare policy.

Believing that access to credible and accurate patient information is fundamental to understanding and receiving quality cancer care, NCCS offers free publications and resources that empower individuals to become strong advocates for their own care or the care of others. Patients empowered with information and tools can receive optimal care by making their needs known to their doctors, care teams, health plans and elected officials.

NCCS’s flagship program is the award-winning Cancer Survival Toolbox®, a self-learning audio series developed by leading cancer organizations to help people develop crucial skills to understand and meet the challenges of their illness.

Mission: To advocate for quality cancer care for all people touched by cancer.

Vision: To be an advocacy organization that reflects the needs of all cancer survivors to effect policy change at the national level.

Goal: NCCS represents the millions of Americans who share a common experience - the survivorship experience - living with, through and beyond a cancer diagnosis. That experience has value and can be a transforming, positive force. NCCS also knows that cancer survivors and those who care for them face many challenges. To help meet those challenges, NCCS:

Advocates for changes in how the nation researches, regulates, finances and delivers quality cancer care.
Empowers cancer survivors through its publications and programs, which provide tools for self-advocacy.
Convenes other cancer organizations to address nationwide public policy issues affecting cancer survivors.
