To lead and support breast and cervical cancer screening to save lives.


Healthy women living cancer-free.


To provide breast and cervical cancer screenings to women in the Greater Jacksonville area.

The program is available to: 

  • Women ages 50 through 64
  • Women who do not have health insurance, which will cover the cost of a mammogram, clinical breast exam, pelvic exam/Pap test
  • Women who are not covered by Medicaid or Medicare
  • Women who meet the income guidelines of the program (at or below 200% of the federal poverty level)
  • Women who are Florida residents and reside in one of the following counties: Clay, Duval, Baker, Nassau, or St. Johns
  • Women older than 40, but younger than 50, with a personal history of breast or invasive cervical cancer may be enrolled and screened through the program if they also meet income and insurance requirements

Services Provided: 

  • Clinical breast exam by a qualified clinician
  • Mammogram at one of the several facilities
  • Pelvic exam and Pap smear test (if cervix is present)
  • Assistance with various follow-up diagnostic tests if the physician recommends them and grant funding is available; or assistance in locating a facility that will provide the tests at a reduced cost if testing must be obtained outside the program
  • Free care coordination if screening or diagnostic testing is abnormal
  • Medicaid for cancer treatment if screened and diagnosed through FBCCEDP with breast or cervical cancer and qualifies for Medicaid

Why should you have exams? 

  • Mammograms can find breast cancer before it can be detected by breast exams.
  • Many women do not have symptoms at the time breast cancer is detected.
  • The chance of survival increases if cancer is found early.
  • Detecting cervical cancer before it spreads is easy with regular Pap tests.
