Who is Eligible?

Patients with cancer and their families being treated or living in the Greater Richmond area with incomes below 80% of the area median income ($90,950 for a household of 4) and no significant assets are eligible for free services. Most families who use income-based public programs will qualify.  We will connect cancer patients above our income guidelines to attorneys and financial planners to discuss fees.

There is no citizenship requirement and no geographic residency requirement to receive CancerLINC services.
