Sign this petition to tell Oregon's leadership to fund breast and cervical cancer prevention and save lives!

The Oregon ScreenWise (Breast and Cervical Cancer) Program provides critical breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services to low-income (at or below 250% FPL), uninsured or underinsured, women who do not qualify for Medicaid.  ScreenWise is mainly funded, federally, by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and, locally, by the State of Oregon General Fund, with some dollars from Susan G. Komen Oregon & SW Washington.

Due to 2018 reductions in federal and state funding, the ScreenWise program needed to create cost-containment strategies which included limiting breast and cervical cancer screening services to women over 50, with diagnostic services to women over 21.  We are concerned that this could potentially leave high risk women under 50 without access to breast and cervical cancer screening services that could save their lives. 

We know that early detection saves lives.  The Affordable Care Act ensures that breast cancer screenings be covered for insured women, beginning at age 40, as a preventive service.  Without access to breast cancer early detection programs, many uninsured and under-served women are forced to delay or forego screenings, which could lead to late-stage breast cancer diagnoses.  This delay could mean that a woman might not seek care until the cancer is advanced, making it up to five times more expensive and much harder to successfully treat.

Show your support for putting these lifesaving dollars back in the budget!
