Twice as many African-American women die from breast cancer than Caucasian women, although fewer actually get the disease. Early screenings can detect abnormalities sooner and potentially save lives.
The Our Bodies Program helps connect uninsured and underinsured women of color with essential breast health services, including:
Volunteers are available to join you on your mammogram appointments and offer support.
Tokens are available for women who use public transportation to get to mammogram appointments.
The Our Bodies Program provides free workshops on breast health.
Upon request, our Breast Health Coordinator conducts educational presentations, distributes learning materials at community sites, and addresses breast health questions and concerns.
For a full list of available support, download the Our Bodies Program brochure.
