Our mission is to reduce and/or eliminate barriers to screening, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.

UNTIL there is a cure for cancer, Kentuckians need help TODAY!
We are excited to announce that we received a $5,000 grant from REGAL to use toward our mission.

Thank you to our previous UK HealthCare Management intern, Justin Kellum, for finding and co-writing the grant proposal for Kentucky CancerLink!

If you are age 50-75 and have not received a colonoscopy in the last 5 years, you are eligible to receive an FREE At-Home Colon Screening FIT Kit (OC-Light).

Call Kentucky CancerLink for more information!

This does NOT replace a colonoscopy, but it is an additional form of screening that can be done yearly.
Kentucky CancerLink is currently scheduling appointments for FREE screening mammograms and health education on Saturday, August 10.

Appointment times are available from 7:30am to 12:00pm.

Kentucky ranks #1 in lung cancer screening. Are you at risk?

Low Dose CT scans can be performed for early detection for individuals who:

  • are heavy smokers, or former heavy smoker (1 pack/day for 30 years or 2 packs/day for 15 years)
  • Quit smoking less than 15 years ago.
  • No current signs of lung cancer.
