About the YWCA Women's Cancer Program
The YWCA Women's Cancer Program strives to eliminate inequities in health care experienced by many women by removing barriers to access and promoting effective community-based outreach, education and referrals to appropriate clinical services.

The program provides screenings for breast and cervical cancers at no charge for uninsured and under-insured women.  Screenings include mammograms, breast ultrasounds, biopsies, Pap tests, pelvic exams and colposcopies. The program serves women in Tippecanoe County and 22 other Indiana counties: Benton, Boone, Carroll, Cass, Clay, Clinton, Fountain, Greene, Hamilton, Howard, Jasper, Miami, Montgomery, Newton, Parke, Pulaski, Sullivan, Tipton, Vermilion, Vigo, Warren and White.

Program staff can provide educational presentations for groups of any size. A special presentation called "Hats Off to Breast Cancer Myths" is a humorous yet educational look at excuses for not getting mammograms. This hat show presentation is available for women's groups.

We have prosthesis and prosthetic bras that can be professionally fit at no charge to any breast cancer patient, not just those diagnosed through our program.
