Task Force Mission Statement

"Comprehensive cancer control is a dynamic and ongoing process which can only be achieved through an active and committed partnership. This can be accomplished with public and private sectors working together from the belief that neither entity can do it alone.

Our mission is to develop, recommend, advocate, and promote an integrated, collaborative, and multi-disciplinary approach to reducing the incidence, illness, and death from cancer. This will be addressed through a culturally-sensitive plan which reflects prevention, early detection, treatment, rehabilitation, palliation, and quality of life issues and will embrace all of the citizens of New Jersey. Coalition building, partnerships, and education are essential to achieving this mission.”
