Mission Statement
Kentucky CancerLink, Inc. (formally known as Kentucky Pink Connection (KPC) provides support to Kentuckians by reducing and/or eliminating barriers to screening, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
 
Examples of barriers to screening and treatment include
providing educational assistance using credible resources such as the National Cancer Institute or the American Cancer Society to help women and men understand cancer screening and treatment options, including understanding and finding cancer clinical trials. KCL provides financial support by connecting patients to appropriate community or national resources, helps patients to understand insurance, negotiate rates, and in some cases KCL becomes the'safety-net' by paying vendors directly to help a patient through a limited crisis and continue treatment. KCL also helps with transportation by connecting to community resources or providing gas cards and taxi vouchers directly. In some cases medication assistance is provided or help is given with childcare or locating other local support for unique needs. KCL provides all patient navigation services free of charge.

KCL's goal is to have women and men focus on getting well while KCL staff search and do the leg work for them. Concerned and ill people do not need to spend all day searching the internet and making phone calls to find help. KCL puts the time and energy into finding resources because KCL staff know there is a real person waiting to hear back. KCL does not ever want to call a cancer patient back and say "I'm sorry, but we can't help you." Instead KCL will keep looking until they can say, "I've found the help you need." KCL provides financial assistance to purchase wigs, provides free mastectomy bras, prosthetics, post-operative camisoles, and in some cases makes direct payments to vendors to keep patients in treatment and their hope alive.
 
Background Statement
Kentucky CancerLink, formerly known as Kentucky Pink Connection, has been providing patient navigation services to women since April 2008.  A grant awarded by the Susan G. Komen, Lexington Affiliate provide funding to kick off our patient navigation program. Patient navigation is a means for improving access to recommended breast screenings, follow-up, diagnosis, and treatment in medically underserved  populations. Kentucky Pink Connection ensures that patients do not "fall through the cracks" as a result of disconnectedness between health care providers and community-based services. Every effort is made to ensure that care is obtained and patients are aware of and helped to access available services. Kentucky Pink Connection is a partner of many healthcare providers, hospitals and cancer centers throughout Kentucky. Over the past six years KPC  has provided over 4,000 women with over 9,000 unique services. 
In 2012, Vicki Blevins, the founder, was honored by receiving the 2012 Lexington-Fayette County Health Departmet Public Health Hero Award, the Lexington American Red Cross Volunteer of the Year Award, and was named one of the twenty Women Leading Kentucky.  
 
Perhaps the biggest honor, however, is what patients themselves say.  Below is a quote from one of the hundreds of many thank you notes received:

“I don’t know what I would have done without the KY Pink
Connection. The people and the program have been wonderful to me. I am getting treatment, where otherwise, I wouldn’t have. Thank you all so much for your help and your caring and compassion.”
  -Brenda N

In April 2014, our board voted to expand our mission to include support for other cancers. We also changed our organization name to Kentucky CancerLink to reflect our expansion and offer support for preventive screenings. We continue to support cancer patients who are diagnosis with cancer with transportation, supplies and other personal needs.
We are excited about our future and look forward to serving all cancer patients in Kentucky.  
 
Impact Statement
Since 2008, Kentucky CancerLink(KCL) has provided navigation services to over 4,000 women and provided over 9,000 services.  Services include providing mammogram and cervical cancer screenings, colon screenings, transportation assistance by finding a community resource or providing a gas card or taxi voucher.  Financial support is given by helping patients understand insurance, negotiate rates, apply for Medicaid or find other programs that offer assistance.  KCL provides funding to support patients in finding and paying for their own wig. KCL supplies lymphodema products and mastectomy supplies such as mastectomy bras, prosthetics, and post-operative camisoles.  All KCL services are provided at no charge.
 
KCL has established partnerships with statewide healthcare providers, free clinics and hospitals. In 2009, with funding provided by Susan G. Komen, Lexington Affiliate,  KCL contracted with the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department to provide patient navigation services for uninsured or underinsured women in 58 central and eastern Kentucky.  Our goals for the current year includes the following:
1)Increase preventive cancer screening awareness and provide navigation services to 1,300 women and men in Kentucky; a 5% increase.
2) Expand current Board to include greater segment of community
3) Diversify funding streams
4) Provide support and resources to all Kentucky cancer patients who are currently in treatment and facing barriers to screening, treatment and support.
 
All assistance is provided to Kentuckians.  Income limits are used to offer services for those living at or below 250% of the poverty level. 
 
Needs Statement
In April 2014, our board expanding our mission to include other cancers as part of our outreach and support. Along with the expansion, we also changed our organization name to Kentucky CancerLink. This reflects our expanded mission beyond breast cancer. We now are serving all patients who are in treatment for all types of cancer. We are in need of additional funding to provide outreach and support to other cancer patients. Additional funding in the amount of $200,000 will allow KCL to support our expanded mission. We would like to restore $50,000 in our Patient Navigator line item and another $150,000 in the patient services fund.  KCL formally known as Kentucky Pink Connection would like to find a community volunteer to provide a full certified audit or find a sponsor to pay the estimated $8,000 needed to conduct a full audit. This service would allow KCL the opportunity to expand our grant opportunities. KCL's most urgent need includes financial support for patient navigation and patient services support. Patient services  includes transportation assistance such as gas cards and taxi vouchers, and patient supplies as needed.  When funding is available KCL  pays directly for a limited time for medical services to meet individual needs in order for a patient to stay in treatment.  
CEO/Executive Director Statement
 We are so excited about all the great happenings here at Kentucky CancerLink, Inc. formally known as Kentucky Pink Connection. In January 2014 we moved into our new office space and our Board voted to expand our mission to support other cancers. On April 1, 2014 we became known as Kentucky CancerLink.
These are a lot of changes, but they are all for the good: good for those in need of preventive cancer screenings, good for all those who are diagnosed with cancer and need support, and good for our communities. We want to do more GOOD things!
Over the last six years, I have been fortunate to witness and to be part of this remarkable organization. I am humbled every day by the wonderful and amazing people I work with, and their commitment to our most important stakeholders, the underserved population within our state.
I am so proud of the work that has been done by the staff, Board and volunteers over the past years that make what we do possible. As we move into our Kentucky CancerLink era, we want to continue to offer hope to many within our state who are in need of cancer education, preventive cancer screenings, and support after a diagnosis of cancer.
Each one of us can make a difference in our own way-some have the resources to  provide financial support, others have talents which they can share as a volunteer. We must always continue to ask the question- "How can I make a difference? I hope you will act upon the answer. 
 
Sadly, Kentucky remains the number 1 state in the country with the highest cancer burden.  Kentucky CancerLink wishes to eventually change that statistic.  By helping one another, encouraging early detection and healthy living, we can! 
Board Chair Statement In 2008 with a spark of passion Vicki Blevins started Ky Pink Connection focusing on breast cancer awareness.  As the years progressed with this successful program, it became time to branch out and help more individuals. More families and more communities in Kentucky need help as they fight this disease.  It has been said by many that cancer is not a disease for 'sissies.'  Its a pathway that should never be traveled alone, a journey that should be shared.  Knowing that you need to have a test because there is an issue, or because your doctor suggest that due to your age it is time to begin this process is somewhat embarrassing to many.  Some do not want to admit that they do not have the funds necessary to have the procedure because of the loss of a job or no insurance.  They put on a strong face and say, “ah there is nothing wrong with me!”  With your help we can reach and help these individuals.  Cancer does not discriminate, it breaks down a person dignity, it robs you of your appearance, it brings you to your knees and it can destroy families or bring them closer together.  We want to be able to provide support to these individuals with the funds raised through community support.  Providing someone with a gas card to help get them to appointments, providing prosthetecs to restore a person’s dignity, or just connecting them to an opportunity to receive cancer screenings.  We can do this and so much more with your help. Your donation and financial support help someone right here in Kentucky.  I dare say that cancer affects everyone, if not you personally, perhaps a family member, perhaps a close friend or a neighbor.  Through early detection we can provide a ray of hope that it has been detected early enough to prevent the spread or eliminate it all together.  Our state moto is “United we Stand and Divided we Fall”.  United we can keep Kentuckians from falling.  We can provide them with hope, we can help restore their strength and we can give them the courage to move forward.   - Peggy Barnes, President

Impact Questions
GoalsHelpWhat is the organization aiming to accomplish? This is the organization's ultimate goal for intended impact.

The mission of Kentucky CancerLink, Inc. (KCL) is to increase preventive cancer screenings for underserved Kentucky residents, as well as provide support after a diagnosis and during treatment for cancer patients. 

KCL expects to demonstrate increased screening compliance with rarely or never screened populations and demonstrate improved quality measures for increasing cancer screenings. KCL goals also include  increase compliance with those in cancer treatment by supporting them to overcome barriers they face to completing their treatment. In addition this same personal attention and patient navigation principles will be applied to increase the number of people who become insured and increase the number of newly insured to take advantage of early cancer screening made available to them through Kentucky's Healthcare exchange and the Affordable Health Care Act.
 

StrategiesHelpWhat are the organization's strategies for its stated long-term goals?

Kentucky CancerLink (KCL), formerly known as Kentucky Pink Connection, was established in April 2008. Beginning its seventh year of operation this April, its mission is to promote evidence-based early detection of cancer and eliminate barriers people face to being screened and to stay in cancer treatment. All full-time staff are certified Patient Navigators from the Harold P. Freeman Patient Navigation Institute. The concept of patient navigation was founded and pioneered by Dr. Harold P. Freeman in 1990 for the purpose of eliminating barriers to timely cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment, and supportive care. It has since evolved to include the timely movement of an individual across the entire health care continuum from prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and supportive, to end-of-life care - See more at: www.hpfreemanpni.org.

Kentucky Pink Connection, just last year helped 1,116 people from 91 different Kentucky counties. 588 received one or more evidence-based cancer screening(s) and came from one of 37 Kentucky counties. 284 clients from 72 counties were supported to complete treatment with transportation assistance, and 219 from 58 counties received an average of 1.8 supportive items such as mastectomy bras, prostheses, compression garments to combat lymphedema, a wig, or post-operative camisole. All services are provided at no cost to the patient. Patient navigation has been proven to increase compliance with uninsured and low income populations and this assumption has been verified by the work Kentucky CancerLink has already done and is committed to do in order to expand its impact in Kentucky on public health.

CapabilitiesHelpWhat are the organization’s capabilities for doing this? What resources, capacities, and connections support its progress towards long-term goals?

Kentucky CancerLink, formerly known as Kentucky Pink Connection has a six year track record of helping uninsured and underinsured patients. Since inception, KCL has helped over 4,000 patients. With the new launch April 1, 2014 as Kentucky CancerLink, KCL anticipates helping many more Kentuckians take advantage of evidence-based cancer screenings. In addition, KCL anticipates helping many more cancer patients in Kentucky to overcome obstacles he/she faces to stay in active treatment.  In 2013, Kentucky Pink Connection helped 1,116 people from 91 different Kentucky counties. 588 clients received an evidence-based cancer screening or more than cancer screening and represent 37 Kentucky counties. 284 cancer patients from 72 Kentucky counties were supported to complete treatment with transportation assistance.  219 patients from 58 Kentucky counties received an average of 1.8 support items such as mastectomy bras, prostheses, compression garments to combat lymphedema, a wig, or post-operative camisole. All services and items are provided at no cost to each client.

Kentucky Pink Connection in 2013 expanded its area of cancer focus by partnering with the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department to provide patient navigation services for the Kentucky Colon Cancer Screening Project. Since inception of that grant, Kentucky Pink Connection has helped 91 high risk individuals obtain a colonoscopy. 49% had polyps removed and 2 were diagnosed with an early stage of colon cancer. 86 more received a FIT screening, Fecal Immunochemical Test, for colon cancer. KCL staff provided education to each client on both tests, the FIT and preparation instructions for colonoscopies. In addition, they reminded patients of appointments, prep, and made sure any barriers they faced, such as transportation or concerns, were addressed. Fayette County, in partnership with Kentucky Pink Connection, led the state in the number of colon cancer screenings completed. This also demonstrated the power of patient navigation and good public and private partnerships.

The recent change with the Affordable Care Act will impact the work Kentucky CancerLink does. It is difficult to predict the number of patients that will be navigated to receive screenings, but with the re-launch and the new name with an expanded mission, it is hoped and predicted that cancer screenings will increase even more. KCL can become a critical partner in helping the uninsured obtain insurance and to take advantage of their benefit to receive evidence-based cancer screenings.

 

 
 
 
IndicatorsHelpHow will the organization know if it is making progress? What are the key qualitative and quantitative indicators against which the organization assesses its progress toward its intended impact?
Kentucky CancerLink (KCL) has upgraded its patient tracking database so that it can easily track and report on all services offered to unique cancer patients.  KCL will continue to monitor and report on the numbers of patients assisted and the services provided.  The upgrades made will also allow KCL to track specific grant categories.  For example if a a grant if given for a specific cancer in specific counties, the system allows KCL staff to track and keep up with monies utilized of that grant and those specific categories.
 
In addition to quantitative data kept and reported, KCL conducts an annual patient satisfaction survey.  This data is compiled and reported along with comments it generates.  In addition, numerous thank you cards and notes are collected with comments from patients assisted.  
 
KCL works with the Kentucky Cancer Consortium an organization of other state partners along with the Kentucky Cancer Registry to seek guidance on where efforts should be most concentrated in order to have the biggest impact in Kentucky.  As new cancer screening guidelines are adopted such as Lung Cancer Screening coming in 2015, KCL plans to assist even more patients in receiving potentially life-saving early detection.   
 
 
ProgressHelpWhat has and hasn’t been accomplished so far?
KCL has already proven it can impact the first objective by demonstrating its impact in increasing the number of rarely or never screened women who have participated in the Kentucky Women’s Cancer Screening Program. In 2012, KCL’s founder, Vicki Blevins was honored as the 2012 Public Health Hero by the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department. In that same year she was honored as one of the Twenty Women Leading Kentucky and received the 2012 American Red Cross Volunteer of the Year Award for her work with disparate populations.   KCL, working to support those in treatment, has also already been achieved for breast and cervical cancer patients and in 2014 will expand to include support of other cancer patients as well. Through other grants and donations, KCL can offer one-on-one meaningful assistance to patients so they can complete their cancer treatments. Clients served are those living at or below 250% of the poverty level. In addition, some patients have been helped outside of those parameters who have fallen upon unexpected hard financial times due to a diagnosis of cancer.

All full-time KCL staff are certified ‘kynectors’ and are knowledgeable in the health care exchange and can assist uninsured individuals to obtain insurance by linking them to in-person assistors and following up to make sure they have completed their enrollment. All patients assisted and type of help or items provided are documented as well in the access database. KCL, both through staff and a network of volunteers as well as interns (from both the University of Kentucky and Eastern Kentucky University), will continue to provide outreach and education on the importance of prevention and early detection of cancer.

CEO Comments KCL welcomes individuals interested in supporting our mission. We are eager to have additional survivors of cancer, community leaders and individuals join in supporting our mission and becoming a volunteer.   We most pressingly need funding support. Help to secure an endowment that could ensure ongoing support of the mission would be ideal. Those interested in spear-heading fund raising projects in their communities is also ideal.  We are committed to raising money to help those in Kentucky needing help with cancer issues.

CEO Comments
Due to an unexpected decrease in grant funding in 2016 and KCL's 2014 expansion to support all cancer,  Kentucky CancerLink's biggest challenge is finding new ways to secure funding.  Additional grants are being pursued and Kentucky CancerLink continues to promote its own additional fundraising events, as well as third party fundraisers that benefit Kentucky CancerLink. The majority of the time spent by KCL patient navigators remains to be in providing direct client/patient support to Kentuckians needing evidence-based cancer screenings and services and support following a cancer diagnosis. Other staff members work part-time in marketing and grant writing, to develop additional sources of financial support of KCL programs.
Description Provides assistance to women and men  in need of preventive cancer screenings, support after a diagnosis of cancer and treatment. Program provides financial assistance for screenings and other needs related to a cancer diagnosis.
Budget $ 300,000

Population Served Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent, People/Families of People with Cancer, Minorities
Program Short Term Success
Kentucky CancerLink formally known as Kentucky Pink Connection will provide navigation and assistance to a minimum of 1,200 Kentucky women and men during the current year.  Women and men will receive on average 2.2 services to help them during a diagnosis of cancer for a total of approximately 2,640 services.
 
 
Program Long term Success
Long term success will be measured by a reduced rate of mortality from  cancer in Kentucky.  Overall mortality rates will decrease from the current rate of 13.3 per 100,000 to below 13. (Kentucky Cancer Registry 2004-2008) Special attention will be paid to those counties with a higher rate than the KY average so as to promote early detection and overcome barriers to screening.
Program Success Monitored By
Maticulous records are kept on each patient who contacts the Kentucky CancerLink (KCL).  The information is entered into a database where various reports are generated.  KCL will be able to report on exactly how many patients were helped and what types of services they received.
 
In addition, a survey is sent to a statistically valid random sample of the patients served each year to assertain how they perceived the assistance provided by the Kentucky CancerLink and if it was helpful or essential to their receiving services and feeling empowered to battle cancer.
 
Data will be compiled and reported on at six month intervals to the Board of Directors and to granting agencies as requested.
Examples of Program Success
In 2013, KCL formally known as Kentucky Pink Connection provided assistance to 1200 Kentucky residents with over 2500 services. 
 
One example of these women helped involves a single mom who was working as a nurse in one of the area hospitals.  She felt a lump and followed-up with her doctor.  Long story short, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.  She worked until she no longer could and took short-term disability through her employer.  When those funds ran out, she received short term assistance with making her COBRA payments by the Kentucky Pink Connection.  By making her COBRA payments, this young mother could keep her insurance and fight her disease.  When her income ceased to be and her savings ran dry, Kentucky Pink Connection helped with gas cards supplying a means for her to get to and from treatment and made phone calls to set-up appointments to get her qualifyed for Medicaid.  This young mother wants to beat her disease and return to work, but just needed assistance to get her through a very rough time in her life.
 
Ms. Gina called and was already at a provider's office but explained she was uninsured.  Luckily because of the outreach done by Kentucky Pink Connection, the provider told Ms. Gina to call Kentucky Pink Connection.  Once Ms. Gina called KY Pink Connection, they made her an appointment to be screened through the health department.  Good thing she did, because it was later determined she did have cancer and now, because she went through the correct process, she qualified for the Kentucky Women's Cancer Program and there was a way to pay for her treatment. 
 
The above are just two of hundreds if not thousands of examples of how women have been helped by the Kentucky Pink Connection.
Description
Kentucky Pink Connection now offers our HealthLink Transit program that provides no cost transportation to Fayette Co. residents who are in need of preventive health screenings. This program will offer gas cards, taxi and other transportation options needed to assist clients in reaching healthcare access. Please contact our office for more details. 859-309-1700

Program Comments
CEO Comments As with most non-profit organizations, our biggest challenge is the funding to provide services and products requested. In addition, we have a small staff to process all the patients request for assistance. We are currently looking for grant opportunities and funding opportunities that will provide funding for patient services and staff support. We are also looking for opportunities to partner with other similar non-profits to band together and maximize support of cancer patients.
