Become a Volunteer

Join the network of more than 200 volunteer attorneys and financial professionals supporting RVA cancer patients.

We ‘LINC’ cancer patients and their families to legal, financial, and community resources to solve the non-medical obstacles that arise with a cancer diagnosis. Our organization was founded by two attorneys and cancer survivors, who understand the legal and financial obstacles patients face.

CancerLINC services are always free and the professional services provided by our volunteers are free of charge to patients who live below the Federally-defined poverty level. Clients who are above the income guidelines are advised that they will need to discuss fees with the attorney/advisor.
