Annual Awards Luncheon was a Terrific Success!​

Our 2019 Annual Awards Luncheon was held on Friday, October 18, at the University of Richmond Jepson Alumni Center. Over 100 friends, supporters and volunteers came out to honor the following five deserving CancerLINC volunteers:

Adam Leonard - Allison L. Held Volunteer Award

Joanna Suyes, Esq., Marks & Harrison - Krista Latshaw Pro Bono Award

Robbie Bassett, Esq., Capital One - Community Pro Bono Award

Boleman Law Firm, P.C.- Outstanding Law Firm

Mary Ann Hager RN, MS - Ronne Jacobs Leadership Award

Special thanks to VCU Massey Cancer Center, our Presenting sponsor, as well as Virginia Cancer Institute and Capital One, Benefactor and Patron sponsors respectively. Support from these sponsors and many others, combined with donations made by attendees resulted in more than $35,000 raised. These funds will support CancerLINC’s mission of helping local cancer patients with legal and financial issues arising from their cancer diagnosis.   

Photos from the Luncheon will be available soon and can be accessed through our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/cancerlincrva   

We are tremendously grateful to everyone who attended and contributed to the event’s success.

In Memory of D. Allen Perkins III



D. Allen Perkins was a past Board member of this organization having served for six years, and as Treasurer for most of that time. He had a strong and abiding commitment to CancerLINC and its mission. Most recently, he served as our accountant. Allen unexpectedly lost his life several weeks back. His service to CancerLINC was invaluable and he will be greatly missed. 

Our heartfelt condolences are extended to Allen's
family and friends.

Join us!
