Women’s Health Initiative
Breast & Cervical Cancer Screening & Diagnostics
The Women’s Health initiative provides financial assistance for breast and cervical cancer screenings to uninsured and underinsured women and men who meet program guidelines. WHI serves more than 1,000 women annually with mammograms, diagnostic mammograms, biopsies and cervical cancer screenings. WHI also assists uninsured women who are diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer with an application for Medicaid for Breast and Cervical Cancer. WHI is the only Texas Healthy Women Breast and Cervical Cancer Services (BCCS) program contractor in the South Plains.
Breast Cancer Patient Navigation
The YWCA’s Breast Cancer Patient Navigation Services enables breast cancer survivors to thrive and shine through the obstacles presented by breast cancer while encouraging, empowering, and supporting one another along the journey. Many of our services include identifying the needs of the patients and linking them to resources, survivor support groups, provide survivors with donated blessings, host special events/socials for survivors and publish information/written resources requested by survivors. We assist anyone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
WHI is made possible with the support of Texas Healthy Women Breast and Cervical Cancer Services, Susan G. Komen, the Lubbock Area United Way, and the CH Foundation. Our offices are located at the Y on University at 6501 University. Enter the building at the Main North Entrance by Parking Lot A.
