Reviews for Legal Information Network for Cancer

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered for LINC for 2 years now and have found it to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I primarily help with fundraising and event coordination and I am always in awe of how much LINC is able to accomplish with the money raised. For each dollar donated, LINC is able to provide $8 worth of services to their clients.

Recently, I had the incredible opportunity to witness first-hand the amazing work accomplished by LINC. I went with Crista Gantz, LINC's Client Services Attorney, to act as a witness for one of our clients, a patient at Massey Cancer Center, as she signed her will and a power of attorney. The client was about to leave the hospital to go into hospice. Seeing how much those simple documents meant to our client and her partner was so moving; she cried tears of relief and I could tell that we were able to provide her with great peace of mind. LINC is an amazing organization, helping people at the most difficult point in their life. I am so fortunate to be able to play a small role.

Volunteering for LINC is rewarding and fun!! The events are always well organized and all volunteers an staff are passionalt ebout helping cancer patients hae peace of mind, when so much is at stake. woring in the financial office of a cancer clinic, I have referred many patients to LINC and results have been great!!! Guardianships for parents in single parent home, refinanaced homes, refffffffferals o local chairities to help catch up on living expenses and bills, writing wills and helping with disabilty and employment issues tha our patients face. One employer did not know about FMLA and quick call to LINC insured the patient that he qualified for leave and details went ot employer and insurance was able to be maintianed thorughout the teraments. CUDOS!!!!!! RFulwider

LINC is an extraordinary organization that provides much needed support services for cancer patients and their families. No other organization in Virginia provides the services that LINC does for cancer patients and there are perhaps only 6 or 7 others in the United States that do. Despite being a small nonprofit, the dedication of its staff, board members, and volunteers is extraordinary. I have seen how LINC has helped cancer patients, brought them relief and eased their stress during crucial healing times. This is an organization that does a lot of good in an area that is rarely addressed.

LINC provides much needed financial and legal services, at no cost, to those battling cancer. This is an important and unique mission, specifically benefiting individuals in Central Virginia. LINC's work would not be possible without the efforts of the incredibly dedicated and enthusastic staff and volunteers helping to further LINC's mission. It has been my pleasure working with these individuals.

LINC is an unique organization that provides legal and financial services for cancer patients. Cancer patients have many challenges and LINC provides resources to support them with the non- medical questions and challenges. The wonderful services of the LINC staff and the volunteer attorneys and financial planners assist patients with services such as estate planning and custody issues to allow the patient to focus on beating cancer.

There simply aren't words to describe the amazing job LINC does helping patients and families going through cancer, and cancer treatment. LINC stepped in to help a friend of ours who was not only fighting for his life, but was also having to "do battle" with financial calls. If it weren't for LINC I don't know what our friend would have done. LINC stepped in and made sure that he and his family could focus their energy on his healing and let LINC take care of the debt collectors, etc. Thank you LINC!!!
