Our mission is to help cancer patients and their families overcome legal and financial obstacles when they need it the most.
CancerLINC connects local cancer patients with volunteer attorneys to provide an array of legal assistance. Most clients meet the federal guidelines for low-income households, and we ask our volunteer professionals to provide services to those clients at no charge.
CancerLINC connects local cancer patients with volunteer financial counselors to provide financial advice and planning. Most clients meet the federal guidelines for low-income households, and we ask our volunteer professionals to provide services to those clients at no charge.
CancerLINC hosts FREE life planning clinics for eligible cancer patients and their families. All documents are prepared virtually and executed in private. Another part of CancerLINC’s mission is to connect patients in need to community resources.
CancerLINC serves cancer patients across Central Virginia, including any patient receiving treatment through a Richmond area cancer care group or facility. In our most recent fiscal year, CancerLINC helped 548 patients and their families with 681 legal and financial issues. Approximately 91% of these patients live below the Federally-defined poverty level, making them eligible to receive pro bono services from at least one of the more than 175 skilled and compassionate CancerLINC volunteer professionals. We are unique. To our knowledge, there is no other organization in the Commonwealth like CancerLINC.
