Mothers, Daughters, Sisters, Friends... Early detection saves lives!

Early Detection and Prevention are the Best Protection.

Knox Community Hospital is working to remove some of the barriers that prevent women from having a mammogram.

The Mother, Daughter, Sister & Friends Project provides assistance for having a mammogram and related needs. KCH also partners with the American Cancer Society, Region 5 Breast and Cervical Health Screening Project, the Knox County Health Department, the Sanctuary Community Action, Kno-Ho-Co Community Action Women's Health and Go Pink for a Cure to ensure assistance is available to those who qualify.

The Mother, Daughter, Sister & Friends Project may be able to assist you if you meet the following conditions:

  • Are not eligible to participate in the Breast and Cervical Cancer Project (BCCP).
  • Are 40 or younger and have a breast mass or identified area of breast concern.
  • Are 40 or older and uninsured, under insured, or need financial assitance to cover a screening mammogram or annual clinical breast exam.
  • Are 40 or younger and at increased risk of breast cancer development, determined by BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 mutation, personal history of abnormal biopsy, or presence of strong family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer.

Don’t let cost, lack of insurance or being under insured stop you from having a mammogram.
