LINC is relatively unique in its ability to provide legal, financial, and community referrals to cancer patients and their families. LINC has a volunteer network of over 150 attorneys and financial planners who provide important non-medical services to these brave individuals on a pro bono or low cost basis. I have been actively involved with LINC for a little more than one year -- it is one of the proudest things that I do. I was sensitized to LINC's mission by my daughter's recent journey through 14 months of chemotherapy. The success stories of clients who have avoided bankruptcy, executed wills and estate planning documents, resolved employment issues, etc. are truly moving. LINC provides hope, compassion, and empathy for many who often have nowhere else to turn -- LINC takes pride in having worked for 17 years to "link" cancer patients who need (or can't afford) help with a circle of professionals who can provide it.
