JOIN OUR CAMPAIGN
The state's program, the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (IBCCP) is dramatically underfunded and currently only serving between 1 in 10 to 1 in 8 eligible uninsured women. This program provides free mammograms and cervical cancer screenings to uninsured women.
At the height of its funding, IBCCP was still only providing mammography screens to 10% of eligible uninsured women. Governor Rauner proposes cutting state funding for IBCCP from $14 million to $4 million, a 71% cut and he proposes completely eliminating the Treatment Act. The Illinois Department of Public Health estimates that the IBCCP cut will eliminate screens for 14,000 women.
