More good news… starting last week- more uninsured women diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer will be eligible to receive comprehensive treatment through Arizona’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Program (which is administered by AHCCCS). In the past, only women diagnosed through Well Woman HealthCheck were able to access treatment through the Program.
The American Cancer Society and Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure, Phoenix and Tucson Affiliates, worked hard to support this change. Funding for the expanded version of the Program was included in this year’s state budget. For more information on the Well Woman HealthCheck Program or the Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Program please visit the wellwomanhealthcheck.org. This is a great community resource- and will save lives.
