Several healthcare groups have come together in a public-private partnership to fight cancer in Kentucky.
The newly-formed Kentucky Cancer Foundation is part of a two-million-dollar initiative to help uninsured Kentuckians get cancer screenings.
In his proposed two year budget, Governor Steve Beshear earmarked half a million dollars each year for colon cancer screenings. He also proposed raising another million from a public-private partnership.
At a news conference to announce the partnership, Beshear conceded that two million dollars won’t go very far.
