About the MCA
Masonic Cancer Alliance (MCA), the outreach network of The University of Kansas Cancer Center, is a membership-based organization that partners with cancer research, care, and support professionals to advance the quality and accessibility of cancer prevention, detection, treatment, and survivorship in the Heartland. Established in 2008 as the Midwest Cancer Alliance, five founding members were unified by one mission: bring more options close to home. Since then, the MCA has expanded to include 17 members across the region at three levels of membership.
The University of Kansas Cancer Center is a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer center; NCI designation expands research and links discoveries made in the University's labs to MCA member hospitals and healthcare organizations, enhancing cancer care at all levels.
Members of the MCA have access to second opinion and consultation services, outreach programs, continuing education opportunities, patient navigation support, and more.
