CancerLINC eases the burden of cancer for patients and their families by providing assistance, education, and referral to legal, financial, and community resources.
A community where no cancer patient goes without needed support services.
Where We Serve
CancerLINC serves cancer patients across Central Virginia, including any patient receiving treatment through a Richmond area cancer care group or facility. In our most recent fiscal year, CancerLINC helped 401 patients and their families with 486 legal and financial issues. Approximately 65% of these patients live below the Federally-defined poverty level, making them eligible to receive pro bono services from at least one of the more than 150 skilled and compassionate CancerLINC volunteer professionals. We are unique. To our knowledge, there is no other organization in the Commonwealth like CancerLINC.
You may have noticed that LINC, the Legal Information Network for Cancer is now CancerLINC. CancerLINC does so much more than assist with legal challenges for our clients, so we changed our name. We also help with financial consulting, and we connect our clients to other much needed resources.
