Cancer Research and Resource Centers of Southern Virginia

Serving Southern Virginia since 2010, the Cancer Research and Resource Centers of Southern Virginia (CRRCSV) help cut through the clutter and fear of a very stressful diagnosis by directing cancer patients, survivors and their networks of support to up-to-date, reliable and helpful information. The CRRCSV has two offices, one in Danville and one in Lawrenceville, both located along the State Highway 58 corridor. They are outreach offices of VCU Massey Cancer Center and are funded by Massey and the Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission.

  • About

    As research centers, we partner with state universities to bring research studies to those living in our communities. As resource centers, we help cut through the clutter and fear of a very stressful diagnosis by directing cancer patients, survivors and their networks of support to up-to-date, reliable and helpful information. You may call or stop by our welcoming offices to:

    • Obtain sound information about cancer diagnoses, treatment options, diet and stress management;
    • Find help with financial or transportation assistance and support services from peer-to-peer networks to hospice; 
    • Learn about the importance of knowing your family’s health/cancer history, getting regular check-ups, and adhering to cancer screening guidelines;
    • Attend live, video-conference talks with cutting-edge cancer researchers via our Conversations with Researchers series.

    Our staff is also very active outside the office walls. They host events throughout the area, recruiting both nationally known speakers and local medical professionals to raise awareness about ways people can reduce the risks of getting cancer via healthy life choices and following the cancer screening guidelines.

    In addition to its ongoing, monthly Keeping Well series for people concerned with cancer prevention and survivorship, the Danville center's main initiatives right now are to:

    • Emphasize the power of detecting and treating cancer in its early stages;
    • Encourage everyone to get screened for colon cancer at the age of 50 (younger if you are at greater risk); 
    • Raise awareness about the human papillomavirus (HPV), its connection to male and female cancers and the HPV vaccine; and
    • Work to reduce illness and death from lung cancer through education and support of tobacco cessation efforts.

    In Lawrenceville, advancements are being made to:

    • Work with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Community Coaches Program to address, understand and improve the health factors within the community that contribute to higher cancer incidence and mortality rates;
    • Work to reduce illness and death from lung cancer through education and support of tobacco cessation efforts; 
    • Encourage everyone to get screened for colon cancer at the age of 50 (younger if you are at greater risk); and
    • Support individuals one-on-one by providing information about a cancer diagnosis, assisting with access to care and connecting survivors and caregivers with the resources they need.

    All of our programs and services are complimentary. Please feel free to call, contact us by e-mail or follow us on Facebook.

  • Mission

    Our mission is to establish, facilitate and maintain engagement with the communities of Southern Virginia to improve the health and well-being of community residents as it relates to cancer, with the goal to advance cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and survivorship.
