Kentucky CancerLink – a nonprofit that helps patients obtain evidence-based cancer screenings and/or provided support such as transportation, childcare and supplies for those with cancer – is the recipient of the 2015 i know expo foundation award. Twenty percent of each i know expo sponsorship dollars from the 2015 i know expo – held April 12 – went into the Blue Grass Community Foundation i know expo foundation. From it, awards were made to two local non-profits. The total amount collected for this year was $5,400. Of that, the 20 percent automatically goes to the i know expo initial non-profit sponsor, ITNBluegrass (Independent Transportation Network), which offers dignified transportation for seniors. Kentucky CancerLink received the other award. Sixty-five percent of its clients are seniors. The majority of its patients are uninsured or underinsured and have household incomes at or below 250 percent of the federal poverty level. The i know expo and its community partners, Sanders Brown Center for Aging, the Mayor’s Commission for Citizens with Disabilities, the Bluegrass Area Agency for Aging and Independent Living and ITNBluegrass, wish to thank this year’s sponsors for their support of the third annual expo.
