Protect funding for breast and cervical cancer screening
Screenings save lives. But, even today, too many women don't have access to lifesaving breast and cervical cancer screening
- Uninsured and underinsured women have lower screening rates for mammograms, resulting in a greater risk of being diagnosed at a later, more advanced stage of disease.
- The Care for Yourself program is part of the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program and offers free or low-cost cancer screening to eligible individuals.
- The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and resulting unemployment and loss of health insurance coverage are likely to result in an increased need for screening services
Please protect the Iowa Care for Yourself program and ensure all women have access to life-saving screenings.
Thank you for joining the fight against cancer and supporting life-saving programs for Iowans.
