For some women, getting screened for breast cancer can be difficult due to lack of funds or insurance. Women’s Way is a program which promotes early detection of breast and cervical cancer through a provision of screening services; and provides a way to pay for most breast and cervical cancer screenings for eligible North Dakota women ages 40-64, who are not enrolled in or eligible for Medicaid or Medicare Part B.
Women’s Way will conduct a 30-minute informational presentation on Tuesday, October 8, at Fargo Cass Public Health, 401 3rd. Ave. N, Fargo, in room 3 of the basement. There are three times to choose from: 8 a.m., noon, and 4 p.m.
“There are many women in our area who qualify for this program, but they just don’t know about it, or how easy it is to get registered,” according to Women’s Way program director Kristi Lee Weyrauch.
Over the past five years Women’s Way has helped 6,575 North Dakota women pay for 27,440 breast cancer screenings and also has assisted 90 women pay for cancer treatments.
