Grants awarded to help in fight against cancer

Some good news today in the battle against cancer.

On Thursday morning, the Lexington Cancer Foundation donated more than $200,000 in grants to 11 Kentucky non-profit organizations.

The money will be used for a variety of cancer related programs, ranging from camps to free prostate screenings.

"There are so many people in need," Kristi Martin of the Lexington Cancer Foundation said. "There are so many gaps between insurance and patient care, and so we are honored and thrilled to do what we do to support those in need in terms of cancer care."

To date, the Lexington Cancer Foundation has raised more than $4 million.
