In their own words...

Thank you so much for providing me with a compression glove and compression sleeve for my lymphedema.  Treatment costs associated with my breast cancer have become a burden and you eased that burden by helping with this treatment at no cost.  Thanks again! - R.M.

Colon Cancer

Kentucky CancerLink has a colon cancer screening in the form of a “take home kit.”  We provide the kit, the education and postage paid envelopes.  You can do the test in the privacy of your own home and then mail in the results.  It’s easy and an excellent pre-screening tool for colon cancer.  If the test is negative, you are good for another year!  If the test is positive it DOES NOT mean that you have cancer, but there may be an issue detected that could require a colonoscopy.  Kentucky CancerLink can help navigate you through that process.
