Breast and Cervical Cancer Outreach

BREAST CANCER PATIENT NAVIGATION PROGRAM

Community Action, Inc, of Central Texas (CAI) has been an established Texas Breast and Cervical Cancer Services (BCCS) Provider since 1996.  With funding from the Austin Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, CAI has expanded its BCCS program to provide comprehensive patient navigation (screening, diagnostic, financial, treatment and survivorship navigation) to uninsured and underinsured women in Hays, Caldwell, Bastrop and Williamson counties.  Since 2013, funding  from the McKenna Foundation in New Braunfels has allowed this patient navigation program to expand to the women of Comal County.  CAI’s Breast Cancer Navigation Team works hard to increase early detection by providing screening mammograms, access to diagnostics for breast problems, access to funding for treatment if a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, and uses client centered navigation to insure that a diagnosed woman completes recommended treatment plans.
