Fighting Breast Cancer!





















In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we salute programs such as the Centers for Disease Control's National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program(NBCCEDP), Scotland's #GetChecked campaign and California's Every Woman Counts program (EWC).   

The NBCCEDP provides free breast and cervical cancer screenings and diagnostic services to low-income, uninsured, and underinsured women across the United States.  #CDC_Cancer
Services Provide Include:
Clinical breast examinations.
Mammograms.
Pap tests.
Pelvic examinations.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) tests.
Diagnostic testing if results are abnormal.
Referrals to treatment.

The unveiling of the Scottish Government and Cancer Research #GetChecked campaign aims to make "checked patterns" synonymous with early detection.  This bold initiative seeks to boost breast cancer screenings thereby improving Scotland's breast cancer survival rate.  The campaign is designed so when someone sees a "check" they might think about getting "checked" if they have a worry or concern. 

The EWC provides free clinical breast exams, mammograms, pelvic exams, and Papanicolaou tests to California‚Äôs underserved women. Their mission is to save the lives of women by preventing and reducing the devastating effects of cancer for Californians through education, early detection, diagnosis and treatment, and integrated preventive services. 

These programs are a few of the many organizations working towards a breast cancer-free world.
