Teresa Sparks says cancer changed her perspective on life.

Worry Turns to Relief
Thanks to CancerLINC

When Teresa Sparks received a judgment for $10,000, she knew she couldn't afford to pay the debt.  Her worry soon turned to relief when she connected with CancerLINC.  To hear her empowering and inspiring story, watch the video.

The Bags and Bourbon Benefit attracts 220 guests.

Bags and Bourbon Benefit
Raises Funds and Awareness

The Westin Richmond was buzzing with excitement on March 21 as 220 guests browsed beautiful handbags and mingled for CancerLINC's Bags and Bourbon Benefit.  While the popular live and silent handbag auction, formerly known as It's in the Bag, is in its 13th year, this year's event marked a turning pointing that made the evening a huge success. 

New attractions, including casino games, a bourbon bar and mobile bidding, helped add to the fun.  More than $73,000 was raised.  Proceeds support CancerLINC's services for local cancer patients. If you missed the fun, visit our photo gallery.
