Daybreak: Breast & Cervical Cancer Screening

By  | 

January is Cervical Health Awareness Month. The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program (WVBCCSP) is dedicated to helping low-income, uninsured, or underinsured women receive free or low-cost Pap tests. The WVBCCSP works with over 300 providers statewide to ensure eligible women receive the services they need. An uninsured woman with a family of four can have a total household income of $60,756 and be eligible for the WVBCCSP. Cervical cancer screening has contributed greatly to the decline of this disease, but we need your help letting people know that these services are available. No woman should die from cervical cancer and West Virginia continues to have one of the highest rates in the nation for invasive cervical cancer.
