of Boone, DeKalb and Winnebago Counties

REGULAR SCREENINGS ARE IMPORTANT
 

Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in women. When detected in its earlier stages, breast cancer can be successfully treated. Routine mammograms and breast exams can detect cancer early and provide women with better treatment options.
 
Cervical Cancer also is treatable if detected early. Since there are often no noticeable symptoms, it is important that women get screened regularly.
 
Breast and cervical cancer screenings and treatment are free to eligible women in Illinois. Even if you have already been diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer, you may receive free or low cost treatment if you qualify. Please call the IBCCP Program for more information and/or to see if you qualify.
 
There is an enrollment process in which you need to complete forms and consents. If you would like an enrollment packet, please call our office.
 
Symptomatic women are encouraged to call for further instructions.
