PA Breast Cancer Coalition holds press conference

EPHRATA, Pa., April 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Did you know FREE treatment is available to women diagnosed with breast cancer in Pennsylvania who are uninsured or underinsured? Unfortunately many women - and many healthcare providers - are not aware of the program or how it can benefit breast cancer patients. That's why the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition (PBCC), in partnership with Senator Vince Hughes, is publicizing the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's Breast and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment Program (BCCPT).

A press conference will be held on Tuesday, May 5 at 9am by the PA Breast Cancer Coalition and Senator Vincent Hughes to raise awareness about the FREE treatment that is available to women diagnosed with breast cancer who are uninsured or underinsured in Pennsylvania. This event will be held at the Main Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg. Scheduled to speak at the event are: Pat Halpin-Murphy, President and Founder, PBCC; Senator Vincent Hughes, Minority Chair, Senate Public Health & Welfare Committee; Everette James, Secretary of Health, PA Department of Health; Joanne Corte Grossi, Director, Office of Women's Services, PA Department of Public Welfare; and Robin Leidhecker, Survivor.

"No woman with breast cancer should be denied treatment - regardless of their income or insurance situation," said Halpin-Murphy. "Thanks to the FREE treatment program, qualified women in Pennsylvania will receive the treatment they desperately need through Medicaid."

"Thanks to the Commonwealth of PA's Breast and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment Program, I received the treatment and outstanding care that I needed," said Robin Leidhecker, a patient enrolled in the FREE Treatment Program. "I was told to just worry about getting well, don't worry about paying for it."

The PA Breast Cancer Coalition represents, supports and serves breast cancer survivors and their families in Pennsylvania through educational programming, legislative advocacy and unique outreach initiatives. The PBCC is a statewide non-profit organization that creates the hope of a brighter tomorrow by providing action and information to women with breast cancer today. For more information on the PBCC, call 1-800-377-8828 x107 or visit www.pabreastcancer.org.
