The Breast Cancer Understanding Prevention and Screening (B.C.U.P.S.) program is in place to financially assist patients in acquiring important screening mammograms and diagnostic testing services. For patients that have been diagnosed with breast cancer and are undergoing treatment, B.C.U.P.S. provides grant funding and patients are eligible to reapply for funding every 6 months. The B.C.U.P.S. program is available based upon current funding.
Program funding is available to residents of Sanilac, Tuscola, Lapeer, and Huron Counties.
