Our Mission

The Premier Cancer Alliance is dedicated to spreading information about the prevention and early detection of cancer to everyone in the Upper Cumberland. With 1/4 of all deaths in the United States caused by cancer, it is something that affects each of us deeply.   

1/2 of all cancer is attributed to lifestyle, yet there is not enough awareness around these known cancer risk factors. We need everyone to join the alliance. By educating yourself and sharing this information, you can help save the lives of those you care about.
