Help Paying for Screenings

Early cancer detection saves lives.

Early Detection

Early cancer detection saves lives! No Delawarean should skip a recommended cancer screening test because they can’t afford it. Programs are available to help!  Check your own insurance plan first to learn what is covered.

If you are uninsured, or if your insurance does not cover cancer screenings, call the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute’s Community Health Outreach and Education Program at 302-623-4661 to learn what programs can help give you the best chance in the fight against cancer.

    Screening for Life

    Qualified Delaware adults may be eligible for free screenings for breast cancer, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer and prostate cancer through Screening for Life.

      Health Care Connection

      Delaware’s Health Care Connection simplifies the eligibility screening process to help uninsured Delawareans access primary care and medical specialists, disease prevention services — such as cancer screenings — and helps ensure access to prescription programs, laboratory and radiology services.

      Call us today at 302-623-4661 for more information about Screening for Life or the Health Care Connection.

        Pink Ribbon

        The Pink Ribbon program is a free service that helps women find community resources and funding for mammograms and other needed care.

          Our navigators can help you:

          • Schedule appointments.
          • Find transportation.
          • Find funding to cover the cost of the mammogram, if needed.

          We are also available to be with you as a support person during the screening and will help you learn more about breast cancer risks, early detection and treatment options.

          To schedule a mammogram through the Pink Ribbon program, call 302-623-4746.
