The Mary Brogan Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program provides lifesaving cancer screenings for medically underserved women between the ages of 50 and 64 who have incomes below 200% of the federal poverty level. For 2017, ACS CAN asks that the state fund the program at a level equal to one-half of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control’s current program investment in Florida, approximately $2.6 million. Recurring state funds would provide a dedicated funding source and help build the long-term viability of the program.

Contact your legislators to urge them to approve funding for the Mary Brogan Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program.
