About

Cancer affects us all at some point in our lives, whether personally or through a loved one or acquaintance.
That’s because 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will develop cancer.1Cancer Facts & Figures 2022,” American Cancer Society

With prevention, 42% of cancers are avoidable.2More Than 4 in 10 Cancers and Cancer Deaths Linked to Modifiable Risk Factors,” American Cancer Society, November 2017 At Kaiser Permanente, cancer care begins with prevention and early detection. And our programs are designed to support individual health and wellness journeys through all stages of care. That includes support for total health — mind, body, and spirit.

We believe there’s no better place to fight cancer than Kaiser Permanente. We treat over 500,000 cancer patients each year.3Destination Health: Stopping Cancer Before It Starts,” Permanente.org, January 21, 2020 This means our doctors have a wealth of knowledge and experience. And our integrated care means your doctors, nurses, and specialists work together and have the most up-to-date information about your health.

Join a community engaged in fighting cancer and thriving.
