Breast and Cervical Cancer Services (BCCS)

Texas HHSC Breast and Cervical Cancer Services

UTMB has participated in the BCCS program since 1991. This program is funded through the Centers for Disease Control and the Texas Department of Health and Human Services (HHSC) and provides breast and cervical screening and diagnostic services to eligible women living in Texas. These services help women receive regular screening, which is the best method to prevent and detect breast or cervical cancer in its earliest stages increasing a women’s chance of survival.

Susan G. Komen Houston®

What began in 1982 as a promise from one sister to another to do everything possible to end breast cancer forever, has turned into a global movement in the fight against breast cancer. Susan G. Komen Houston® along with the other Komen affiliates have raised and invested almost $2 billion towards that promise. Through funding research, community outreach and advocacy programs Komen has made an impact in over 50 countries. UTMB participates in and raises funds for Susan G. Komen Houston®.

UTMB has received funding from Susan G. Komen Houston since 2005. The funds allow us to offer breast cancer education, screening mammograms, diagnostic services and patient navigation to women who qualify for our Komen Complete Care Program. The program is an integral part of the Cancer Center and Komen partnership to assist financially eligible, uninsured women living in Brazoria, Chambers, Galveston, Harris, Liberty or Montgomery Counties with breast screening, diagnosis, treatment and support.
