Freedom From Smoking Certification

On October 14, the Kentucky CancerLink staff will be attending a certification to become Freedom From Smoking facilitators.  With this certification we will be able to provide Kentuckians with tools and education for smoking cessation, including classes and one-on-one assistance.  The KCL team is excited about this opportunity!

STAY TUNED for updates on Freedom From Smoking!

In their own words.....

"I am so very thankful for your help in getting the compression garments.  Your office staff have been very nice and pleasant to work with.  May God Bless each one of you."  S.C.

"I just want to say thank you for all you do for me and everybody else.  You are a great program when I am in need during this hard time trying to beat cancer."

"If it wasn't for the concern the ladies show, I probably wouldn't get my test done.  Hard to turn down genuine concern and care.  Thank you!"  D.M.

To those who support our mission, we thank you on the behalf of the Kentucky clients we are able to serve.
