It Could Save Your Life


Every 12 minutes a woman in America dies of breast cancer. Early detection saved Rhonda's life - it could save yours too! 

 

Think You Can’t Afford a Mammogram?

The Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP) wants to help women get the screening tests they need to detect breast and cervical cancers. The program helps save the lives of women through early detection by providing those who qualify with FREE examinations. The tests include a pelvic exam, Pap smear, clinical breast exam and a mammogram.

Because we want every woman to be tested regularly, BCCCP provides these free services to women between the ages of 40-64, who have little or no insurance and meet financial requirements. We even provide referrals and follow-up when needed. Some women who are 18-39 years of age may also be eligible for these services. Learn more at buncombecounty.org/pink.

If you think you or someone you know may need these services, please call 250-6006 today.
