Patient Resources

Every day, women just like you across Pennsylvania reach out to the PA Breast Cancer Coalition with questions about breast cancer. Since 1993, we have helped thousands of women with their concerns.

A majority of callers were uninsured or underinsured women who needed mammograms and were referred to the Pennsylvania Department of Health's HealthyWoman Program, or needed breast cancer treatment and were referred to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment program (BCCPT).

Below are some of the resources we refer women to most frequently. If the issue you are facing is not addressed here, or if you still have questions, please feel free to contact PBCC patient advocate Dolores Magro directly at 610-622-3390 or Info@PABreastCancer.org. You can also leave a message on our toll-free line at 800-377-8828 x3020.
