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.

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!!!
