  A recent $100,000 donation to the Kentucky Cancer Foundation will help people across the Commonwealth undergo colon cancer screenings. Kentucky One Health's donation follows Governor Steve Beshear’s challenge to match his office's $1 million  commitment to increase the amount of colon cancer screenings.

Ten Kentucky health departments are receiving grants that will allow them to do more colon cancer screenings for low-income, uninsured Kentuckians. Calloway County and Christian County health departments will both receive part of the one million dollars in grants from the General Assembly and the Kentucky Cancer Foundation.
