The BCAN North Carolina Triangle Chapter was organized in March 2013 as an outreach of the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network. Our mission is to provide information and support to patients, caregivers, health care providers, and the general public; raise awareness through outreach programs; and advance research through collaboration and fundraising.

Our chapter leadership is a diverse group of advocates and health care providers.

We are dedicated to supporting people with bladder cancer, and their loved ones, along the trajectory of care – newly diagnosed, undergoing treatment, or completed treatment. We also support those with advanced disease, and loved ones who have lost someone to bladder cancer.
