Kentucky CancerLink, formerly known as Kentucky Pink Connection, was founded in April 2008. The organization was established by Ms. Vicki Blevins-Booth. The organization was initially sponsored by the Kentucky Breast Cancer Coaliton. Ms. Blevins received her first grant from Susan G. Komen, Lexington Affiliate in April of 2008 and quickly obtained her own 501c3 status. .
In 2014, after hearing the voices and seeing the need for assistance in other cancers, the board voted to expand the mission. In April of 2014, Kentucky CancerLink was officially launched with the expanded mission to remove barriers to Kentuckians so they can receive all evidence-based cancer screenings and to support those diagnosed with cancer.
