NBCF National Mammography Program
The National Breast Cancer Foundation provides grants to facilities across the United States that provide screening and diagnostic mammograms, breast ultrasounds, clinical breast exams, and patient navigation to underserved individuals who qualify.
If you are unable to find an NBCF-funded facility near you, here are a few resources that provide information about where to find low-cost or free mammograms:
National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP)
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides access to breast cancer screening services to underserved women in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, 5 U.S. territories, and 12 tribal organizations. Learn more at CDC.gov.
National Cancer Institute
Information about free or low-cost mammogram screening programs is available through NCI’s Cancer Information Service at 1-800-422-6237. Learn more at Cancer.gov
The American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society provides lists of resources where you can receive a free or low-cost mammogram based on your location. When you go to their website, Cancer.org, look for the blue “My ACS” in the top right corner. When you click on that, you can enter your zip code. Scroll down to the Local Resources section and click on Health Care and Screenings. You can search these resources for free or low cost mammogram screenings in your area. Learn more at Cancer.org.
Call your local hospital. Ask to speak to a social worker, patient navigator, or nurse navigator. This person will be the one who knows about the availability of free or low-cost cancer screenings in your area.
