Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program
The Baltimore City Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP) has been going strong for the past seven years. Since its inception in 2002, the BCCP has provided nearly 4,000 mammograms, detected 33 breast cancers, four cervical cancers and five additional gynecological cancers.
MedStar Harbor Hospital offers eligible women free screenings that can save their lives.
|We offer free:
- breast exams
- Pap tests
|Women who are:
- between 40 and 64 years old,
- Baltimore City residents,
- underinsured or uninsured and
- live on a limited income.
Survivors Offering Support (SOS)
The BCCP works closely with Survivors Offering Support (SOS), a breast cancer survivors support program that integrates trained survivor volunteer mentors into a hospitals' standard of care for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. SOS mentors are highly trained and informed and they are linked to the hospital and not a stand-alone survivor support program. Learn more.
The Red Devils
The BCCP partners with The Red Devils, an organization that funds services to improve quality of life for breast cancer patients and their families. The emotional and physical impact of this disease may make some of the things we take for granted almost impossible such as house cleaning, getting to doctor appointments and preparing family meals.
The BCCP participates in the Amiga's Project, a partnership with Nueva Vida, a support network for latinas with cancer to improve access to breast cancer screenings for Latinas in Baltimore City.
MammoJam Music Festival
The BCCP works closely with MammoJam Music Festival, a non-profit organization that uses live music performances and artistic showcases to promote the importance of early breast cancer diagnosis and treatment and to ensure access to these vital resources for underinsured and homeless women in the Baltimore area.
MammoJam recently awarded a gift of $10,000 to the MedStar Harbor Hospital Foundation, used to fund the position of a Bilingual Outreach Worker for the BCCP to identify Spanish-speaking women for breast and cervical cancer screening and to guide them through the screening process. Learn more.
