Texas AgriLife Extension Service is proud to be a local sponsor of the Friend to Friend: Staying Well Together program. This program’s purpose is to encourage women to get regular mammograms and Pap tests for the early detection of breast and cervical cancer, when the disease is most curable. For every woman 40 and over, a mammogram is a must! For most women, a Pap test is a must, too.

The Friend to Friend Program makes it easy for you by providing up-to- date information on breast cancer and mammograms and on cervical cancer and Pap test from health professional. It answers your questions and concerns about mammograms and Pap test, and it helps you get these important screenings free or for a low cost, if you meet eligibility requirements.
