One Maryville woman is doing what she can to help people battling chronic illness.
Last spring, Dorothy Kincaid found out she had pancreatic cancer. Since then, she has made it her mission to get patients with low incomes the help they need.
Her foundation "The Beloved Community Outreach" introduced itself to Blount County at the St. Paul AME Zion Church where she attends.
Kincaid said she's inspired by the outpouring of support.
"My family is here. My community is here. People that I met in therapy, people that I met while going through radiation treatment, they're here because they know the need for it," said Kincaid.
Kincaid has been working with her minister since October on this endeavor. She hopes to officially open her foundation by November to help people struggling with chronic illnesses get financial and emotional support.
