Featured in the October issue of TOPS Magazine - Inspiration Issue
Survivor Tina Hasty was featured in Tops in Lex this month and shared her story about her fight with breast cancer. KCL was fortunate to be able to assist Tina and provide her with resources. Tina’s diagnosis was a result of a "lucky mammogram sign-up when Kentucky CancerLink happened to be conveniently in Tina's path outside the cafeteria" at her workplace.
