There is a great deal of interest in supporting cancer efforts in WV as most people in our region are touched by cancer in some way. For some organizations, individuals, and groups, the task is not always easy. Documents such as The WV Cancer Plan 2016-2020 were designed to help everyone to do their part by outlining the goals, aims, objectives, and strategies to addressing the top cancer issues in the state. Combining our individual efforts can make a difference for the people in our state and everyone is encouraged to join Mountains of Hope. It is free and open to all who support the coalition's mission and vision. Please take a look around our website to see all that the coalition has to offer and how you can get involved.

Subcommittees

The coalition members select one of three subcommittees to join. Each committee will focus on policy, systems, and environmental change efforts; education and outreach; and addressing social determinants of health.

1. Prevention-Cancer prevention is the practice of taking active measures to decrease the incidence of cancer and mortality. The practice of prevention is dependent upon both individual efforts to improve lifestyle and seek preventative screening, and socioeconomic or public policy related to cancer prevention.

2. Early Detection-Early detection refers to measures that can be taken to diagnose cancer as early as possible when the disease is easiest to treat. Methods of early detection can include cancer screening, which means to search for cancerous cells or tissue when no symptoms are present.

3. Survivorship and Quality of Life-Survivorship focus on the health and life of a person with cancer post-treatment until the end of life. Survivorship includes issues related to the ability to get health care and follow-up treatment, late effects of treatment, second cancers, and quality of life.
