Tennessee Cancer Patient Coalition Company Profile

14:53 EDT 19th September 2019 | BioPortfolio

The Tennessee Cancer Patient Coalition’s mission is to serve as an advocate for cancer patients and their caregivers. The Coalition believes cancer patients should have the opportunity to make informed decisions about their care and have equal access to the most advanced treatment methods available. Proton Therapy is the most advanced form of radiation treatment used to treat cancer by specifically targeting the tumor and while sparing healthy tissues. Tennessee ranks 22nd in cancer incidence rate, but 5th in cancer death rates. The Tennessee Cancer Patient Coalition was established to advocate for cancer patients and has supported legislation for equal coverage for proton therapy in Tennessee. As part of its efforts, the coalition launched a grassroots campaign to better educate legislators in hopes they make informed decisions on healthcare coverage for their constituents.
