In coordination with our partners and key decision-makers in the state, the Alliance works to ensure our laws, ordinances and policies protect residents from cancer to the greatest extent possible, and it advocates for access to cancer prevention, screening and treatment for all South Carolinians.



Expand awareness and screening services among South Carolina's underserved populations.


Increase partnerships with various regional, state, and national partners to expand Medicaid in South Carolina.
