PhotobucketWhy Be Frugal?

I consider frugality an art form and a religious conviction. I learned about paying cash for purchases, recycling and reusing just about everything and being generous to friends and those in need from my parents.

My faith instructs me all things are gifted by God and so I am compelled to be a good steward of my gifts. [The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to man. Psalm 115:16]

Free Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening

The Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program of the Center For Disease Control provides free screenings and diagnostic services to low-income (could be defined as less than $44,000/year for a family of four), underserved and uninsured women. Their website indicates, between 8%–11% of U.S. women of screening age are eligible to receive NBCCEDP services.

The program helps low-income, uninsured, and underinsured women gain access to breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services. These services include
  • Clinical breast examinations.
  • Mammograms.
  • Pap tests.
  • Pelvic examinations.
  • Diagnostic testing if results are abnormal.
  • Referrals to treatment.
Visit the Centers for Disease Control Website for details of the CDC National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program to get all the details and to determine whether or not you qualify for these potentially life-saving free screenings.
