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.

There are over 6,000 women currently being waitlisted or turned away from this important program.  Some of these women, undoubtedly, have cancer that is going undetected.  This is unacceptable!  The Governor has proposed maintaining funding for IBCCP.  We support his efforts.  To do this, we need to maintain our current state income tax rate at 5%.

Please sign our petitions to urge the Illinois General Assembly to:
(1)  Support Gov. Quinn's budget with flat funding for IBCCP.
(2)  Support maintainin our current state income tax rate.
