Bebashi helps connect uninsured and underinsured women of color with essential breast health services.
Twice as many African-American women die from breast cancer than Caucasian women. In fact, according to the National Cancer Institute, breast cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death among African-American women. Early screening can detect breast abnormalities sooner and potentially save lives.
Women over 40 should get a mammogram once a year. Mammograms are quick, easy, safe, and use less radiation than a dental X-ray. If you are uninsured or underinsured and need help getting connected to care, we can help.
Bebashi’s Our Bodies Program helps connect uninsured and underinsured women of color with essential breast health services including:
Linkage to screening including free or low cost clinical breast examinations, referrals, and mammograms
Support for women who experience breast health abnormalities including breast cancer. If you have an abnormal screening, Bebashi will link you to diagnostic services and treatment and will provide ongoing support throughout your treatment.
Bosom Buddy Support: Our volunteers are available to join you on your mammogram appointments and offer support.
Transportation Assistance: We provide tokens for women who use public transportation to get to mammogram appointments.
Breast Health Workshops: You’ll receive informative information and can discuss questions and concerns about breast health with our staff.
For more information or to make an appointment with our breast health coordinator, call 215-769-3561, extension 112 or email us.
