screen for life program
St. Francis has developed the Screen for Life program, funded by the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, to provide free mammography screenings and diagnostics to women who either do not have medical insurance or are financially unable to pay. Qualifiers must be Upstate residents and be referred from physicians or free clinics that have privileges at St. Francis. The program also seeks to alert high-risk populations in the Upstate, like African American and Hispanic women,of the benefits of early breast cancer detection. Learn more about mammography >>
