Breast and cervical cancer tests save lives.

Women’s Wellness Connection

Women’s Wellness Connection (WWC) offers free breast and cervical cancer screenings at more than 100 clinics across Colorado to those who qualify.

We also provide health navigators who can help you with the process of getting the right tests, including mammograms and Pap or HPV tests, and any needed follow-up tests.

When cancer is caught early, it’s easiest to treat and defeat. In fact, nearly all women can survive breast and cervical cancer when it’s found early!

Step one

Find out if WWC is the right program for you.

The WWC program serves women ages 21-64 with no health insurance or limited insurance who are also on a limited income. Generally, their income levels must be under $34,000 per year for a single person and about $70,000 for a household of 4.

The WWC program welcomes all people in Colorado, including those who are transgender or gender nonconforming (TGNC) and need breast and cervical cancer screenings as part of their routine health care. Find out more about recommended cancer screenings for people who are TGNC.

Step three

Schedule your appointment. 

Call the WWC clinic directly to schedule your appointment and confirm program eligibility. After enrollment, you will meet with a doctor or other health care professional. They may do the Pap and/or HPV test for cervical cancer and a clinical breast exam for breast cancer at that appointment. For tests that can’t be done at the clinic, like mammograms, the clinic will help you find a participating facility to get the test done. After your test results come back, a WWC health navigator will help you arrange any follow-up testing if needed.

Who should get tested?

Cervical Cancer

Women ages 21-64 should get checked for cervical cancer every 3-5 years with a Pap test (or Pap smear) and/or an HPV test. These quick, routine tests are done in a doctor’s office or clinic.

Wondering what to expect? Find out more about the tests.

92% of women survive cervical cancer when it’s found early. Pap and HPV tests can even prevent cancer by finding abnormal cells before they become cancer. So stay caught up on your routine Pap and HPV tests!

Breast Cancer

Women over age 40 can get checked for breast cancer with a mammogram. Doctors recommend getting this x-ray test every 1 - 2 years, depending on age. The entire procedure takes about 20 minutes, but the x-ray only takes about 10-15 seconds for each side. 

Wondering what to expect? Find out more about mammograms.

98% of women survive breast cancer when it's found early. Breast cancers can start years before there are any physical symptoms, so getting routine mammograms is usually the only way to find the cancer early.
