Are you worried about the cost of a
screening mammogram?

Any woman can get breast cancer, but as you get older, your chances increase. Early detection is your best protection. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, talk to your health care provider about when to start and how often to get a screening mammogram.

Worried about the cost? The North Carolina Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP) provides free or low-cost breast and cervical cancer screening and follow-up services to eligible women. For more information about BCCCP, contact Hannah Corn at (828) 694-6010.
