Kentucky CancerLink (KCL) is a "grassroots" 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to reduce and/or eliminate barriers to screening, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Since being founded by Executive Director, Vicki Blevins-Booth in 2008, KCL has served thousands of Kentuckians in need of cancer screenings or facing barriers after a cancer diagnosis.
KCL has Certified Patient Navigators on staff that work one-on-one with our clients. Transportation to and from treatment is the number one request that is received. Based in Lexington, KCL serves the entire state from Pikeville to Paducah. It's through the great generosity of individuals, organizations and businesses that allow us to do our work. We all want a cure for cancer. However, UNTIL there is a cure for cancer, Kentuckians need help TODAY!
