The Breast and Cervical Cancer Project Is Looking for Patients! The Southwest BCCP has a mission to identify breast and cervical cancers at the earliest possible stages for underserved women in our area. BCCP is always looking for women they can help by providing free mammograms or pap tests.

The program is funded by an Ohio Department of Health (ODH) grant and serves a 16-county area in Ohio: Adams, Brown, Butler, Champaign, Clark, Clermont, Clinton, Darke, Greene, Hamilton, Highland, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, Shelby, and Warren counties.

  • Women 21-64 years of age for cervical screening and clinical breast exams

  • Women 25 – 39 years of age for breast screening and diagnostics (for symptomatic or high-risk, with physician orders listing reason)
