Mission: To facilitate and coordinate collaborations, statewide and at the community level, to address Mountains of Hope's priorities.
Vision: To reduce the human and economic impact of cancer in West Virginia.

Facilitated through Cancer Prevention and Control at the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, the Mountains of Hope Cancer Coalition (MOH) is dedicated to reducing the human and economic impact of cancer in our state.   MBRCC is one of four founding members of the coalition in partnership with the American Cancer Society (ACS), WV Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program (WVBCCSP), and WV Comprehensive Cancer Program (WVCCP)    

 

Coalition Membership:

Part of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Comprehensive Caner Control Program, MOH Coalition members meet face-to-face on quarterly basis to pool resources and collaboratively implement the goals and objectives outlined in our state's ambitious comprehensive cancer plan.    The WV Cancer Plan is a blueprint that was developed by health care professionals, cancer survivors, and the general public.  It’s designed to be used by communities, organizations, universities, and legislators who want to work on three major areas that impact cancer – prevention, early detection, and quality of life.

 

Coalition members include more than 260 health care professionals, volunteers, cancer survivors and community advocates representing over 130 community-based organizations, research and academic institutions, public and private agencies, coalitions, voluntary associations, patient advocacy groups, and other cancer-related organizations from throughout West Virginia.
