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.
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.
