Since 2008, our mission has been to reduce and/or eliminate barriers to screening, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.

UNTIL there is a cure for cancer, Kentuckians need help TODAY!

Updated Patient Services Room
Due to the generosity of a local breast cancer survivor, Casey Sturgeon, our Patient Services Room has a touch of elegance. She wanted to give to our organization and was touched by the services that we provide via our Patient Services Room. We are able to provide wigs, post-mastectomy bras and prosthesis, and lymphedema garments* at no cost to the patient.

We are so thankful for Casey's talent and generosity! A special thanks to Sandy and Mily Ralsten for donating the lighted mirror. Thanks to KCL intern, Maddy Holloway for her hard work in making this a possibility and organizing the space.

Kentucky CancerLink has started utilizing UBER Health for patients in need of transportation to and from cancer-related medical appointments.

We are currently seeking community partnerships to help provide funding for this effort! Transportation continues to be the overwhelming, number one request for Kentuckians in cancer treatment.

Call 859-309-1700 if you are able to help! Marketing opportunities available!
Kentucky CancerLink's Programs are only possible due to funding from individuals and Community Partners! We appreciate your support!
