Low-income women die from breast and cervical cancer more often than other women. These high mortality rates are attributed in part to the fact that these women generally do not receive regular mammograms and Pap Smears. As a result, cancers are diagnosed at later stages when it is more difficult to treat and the chances for survival are less.
Through Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (IBCCP), LaSalle County Health Department is working to increase breast and cervical cancer awareness and break that cycle of late-stage treatment for uninsured women. IBCCP provides FREE mammograms and Pap Smears for those women who qualify.
Call to see if you are eligible for a free mammogram and/or pap smear. Early Detection Saves Lives
