(CCA) — The Commonwealth Cancer Association will hold its Inaugural Golf Open Fundraising Tournament on Saturday, June 19, 2021 at LaoLao Bay Golf and Resort, East Course. The funds raised during this event will benefit CCA programs and essential services
In 2003, CCA began as an alliance of volunteers and became formally chartered and incorporated in 2008.
In 2009, CCA achieved a tax-exempt under 501 (c)(3), status and since then has been providing direct client financial assistance such as nutritional supplements and other personal needs, as well as offering certain types of medical equipment, e.g. hospital beds, wheelchairs, oxygen concentrator, etc. as prescribed by locally licensed physicians in the CNMI to those individuals who are receiving treatment for cancer.
CCA facilitates monthly cancer survivors support group meetings, and engages in various awareness and outreach activities.
CCA has produced various educational publications such as brochures, fliers, videos and DVD’s for our diverse community.
CCA organizes community events to raise awareness about oral cancel, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung and pancreatic cancer, just to mention a few.
In addition, CCA engages in programs such as early screening and detection, and patient navigation.
And that is why CCA, in partnership with all seven dental clinics in the CNMI, is offering free oral cancer screening for all ages.
CCA thanks all of its partners, donors and individuals who contribute to the successful programs of the association.
The public is encouraged to learn about CCA programs and contribute to the very important and worthwhile work of the association.
