Mission Statement

Under the auspices of the Community Health Improvement Coalition, the Val Verde-Kinney Cancer Task Force's purpose is to reduce the burden of cancer on the residents of Val Verde and Kinney counties.

The Task Force will create and expand cooperative efforts that maximize available cancer resources.

The Task Force will use the Texas Cancer Plan and its goals of cancer prevention, early detection and treatment, professional training, cancer data, and planning, and survivorship to promote its mission.

Brief History of the Cancer Task Force

The Val Verde-Kinney Cancer Task Force was founded on Oct. 24, 2005. Since that time, the VVKCTF has met monthly to work on the goals for the Texas Cancer Plan.
