The Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Project (BCCP)

BCCP was started to decrease breast and cervical cancer deaths by providing free mammograms, pelvic exams, and Pap tests to women in the community who need it most. Currently they have local providers in 16 counties.

BCCP can help all women navigate screening. BCCP Patient Navigation program helps guide women through the healthcare system, find providers and community resources. Additionally, BCCP can answer any questions about scheduling, appointment, using insurance and more.
