VA announces expansion of “Close to Me” cancer program as part of the Cancer Moonshot, bringing cancer diagnosis and treatment closer to thousands of Veterans

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — Today, as a part of the Biden Cancer Moonshot, the Department of Veterans Affairs announced an expansion of its Close to Me cancer care program. This expansion will bring new cancer diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance services to an additional 9,000 Veterans and 30 locations by the end of October 2025.

Under this program, VA clinicians travel to provide Veterans with the full continuum of cancer care at nearby community-based outpatient clinics, often in rural locations. This reduces the need for Veterans to travel to medical centers for cancer care, affording Veterans and their caregivers more time to go about their daily lives and focus on healing. It also allows more Veterans to utilize VA care, which is proven to be the best care in America for Veterans.
