UnityPoint Health - John Stoddard Cancer Center

Pink Days Program

Mammograms are an important part of our fight against breast cancer. They have the ability to catch breast cancer at it's earliest stage, when it is most treatable. For women who are uninsured or underinsured, access to preventive health screenings is either limited or nonexistent.

John Stoddard Cancer Center has partnered with Bras for the Cause, Iowa Lutheran Hospital and Iowa Radiology to offer "Pink Days" - a free mammogram program for uninsured and underinsured women in the Des Moines area.

Eligibility Guidelines:

  • Women age 40 or over
  • Income at or below 250% of the federal poverty income level
  • No insurance or insurance that does not cover these services, and no Medicare Part B coverage

What if they find something during the mammogram?

The Pink Days Program includes follow-up diagnostic mammograms and breast ultrasounds if needed. Women who require additional testing beyond this or those diagnosed with cancer or a pre-cancerous condition, will be enrolled in the Iowa Care for Yourself Program for additional testing and treatment.
