It takes a community to battle cancer and to encourage cancer patients to stay in the fight. For nearly 23 years, CancerLINC, a unique local nonprofit that offers hope and help to cancer patients facing legal and financial challenges, has been at the forefront of advocating for local cancer patients and helping them find needed community resources.
We know firsthand how important it is for cancer patients to feel supported by their communities. That is why we are hosting CancerLINC’s Circle of Hope Community Breakfast on Sept. 13 from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at RVA U-Turn Sports Performance Academy at 2101 Maywill Street, Richmond, VA 23230. The community breakfast will bring together Richmond’s faith community, cancer care medical providers and treatment centers, nurse navigators, oncology staff, cancer advocates, caregivers and cancer survivors for a message of hope.
The keynote speaker for the event is national author and cancer care advocate Lynn Eib, whose book When God & Cancer Meet sold more than 100,000 copies. Eib founded the country’s longest running faith-based support group and is a reporter-turned-author who worked for two decades as an oncology patient advocate. She is also a 29-year cancer survivor who has offered hope to thousands of cancer patients and their caregivers. Her latest book, Peace in the Face of Cancer, was released in 2017.
