1 The Arizona Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan
Dear Residents of Arizona,
Cancer remains the second leading cause of death in our state and affects every individual, family, and
community. It is with great pleasure that we present the first ever Arizona Cancer Plan. The plan serves as a
comprehensive blueprint for action that will guide state cancer control efforts and promote collaborations between
public and private agencies. Progress in cancer control and prevention will result from the collective work of a
multitude of organizations including government, business, health care, research, and non-profit organizations.
