WBCI COMMUNITY GRANTEE RESOURCES

Grantee Resources

Thank you for serving as a WBCI Community Grantee. The services you provide to your community is why The Wyoming Breast Cancer Initiative is here!

On this page, you will find support resources to help you provide the best quality care to those in your care, while also helping to increase breast cancer awareness across Wyoming.

Early Detection Voucher Applications

In September 2021, WBCI and the Wyoming Cancer Program (WCP) proudly introduced a coordinated effort to increase breast cancer screening and early detection rates in Wyoming. The unique partnership offers one consolidated application available in English and Spanish that can easily determine eligibility for state-funded cancer screening services such as colonoscopies, mammograms, and Pap tests.

This uncommon partnership provides a seamless link to WBCI’s non-profit funds for the men and women who “fall between the lines” of needing early detection services, not being able to afford one, and being ineligible for the state-funded Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCSP). WBCI funds have provided a breast cancer early detection safety net for thousands of Wyoming residents in financial need without any restrictions on income, age, gender, or insurance status. 

Those in need are encouraged to complete one of the online applications below to request a breast cancer early detection voucher.

Social Media Resources

We are proud to provide our Community Grantees these social media resources to help increase breast cancer awareness across Wyoming. All WBCI Community Grantees have agreed to use their social media platforms as a way to help increase breast cancer awareness and the recognition of WBCI in their communities.

  • You Deserve to Know! Did you know an early diagnosis literally saves lives? With early detection, over 90% of women are free of cancer 5 years after diagnosis. Late diagnosis often results in death. WBCI can help if you cannot afford your mammogram, diagnostic mammogram, or ultrasound.

Prevent Cancer Foundation’s
Breast Health Education for Young Women

Prevent Cancer Foundation (PCF) is a proud funder of the Wyoming Breast Cancer Initiative. PCF has announced their recently revised Breast Health Education for Young Women Facilitator’s Guide/ Guía de educación sobre la salud de los senos para mujeres jóvenes, available in Spanish or in English, encourages breast health education all year long! The revised guide is available as a free download.

The Breast Health Education for Young Women Facilitator’s Guide was developed by the Prevent Cancer Foundation in partnership with Howard University Cancer Center for use in interactive group sessions — whether in person or virtual — to broaden and deepen breast health education for all young women, however, they define their sex or gender.

Updated in 2020, this user-friendly educational tool has been used in communities far and wide to reach young women with information about breast health and breast cancer—and to encourage information sharing with female relatives who are age-appropriate for screening.
