"Legal Information Network for Cancer, Inc.       30,000        0".

(This amendment provides $30,000 the first year from the general fund to the Legal Information Network for Cancer, Inc. (LINC). The LINC provides information and counseling to cancer patients throughout the state. Most of the patients are low income and do not have the resources to sustain themselves or have their basic life needs met while in treatment and recovery. LINC will use the funds appropriated to sustain its information and referral programs and to upgrade its website so that it can serve as a comprehensive information portal to all who may need strategies to copy with the ancillary effects of the disease. This funding would be a continuation of the funding provided in 2007.)
