Since the original Ohio Cancer Plan: 2010 was published in 2003, Ohio Partners for Cancer Control have held countless meetings and conference calls to assess our progress and to update the goals, objectives and strategies in this plan. Thanks to all of the individuals and organizations who contributed to this statewide cancer plan. We appreciate your support!
I know that I have been blessed and given a second chance at life. My goal is to be the best cancer advocate I can be. Survivors must understand that their goal may not have anything to do with cancer education, detection, diagnosis, etc., and that is fine. The new goal just needs to be something that they are passionate about and willing to act on. We as survivors can accomplish great things. We are at a decision point as a group and as
individuals. We can sit and think, or we can band together and act. I prefer to act!
