Thanks to CHI Saint Joseph Health and their Yes, Mamm! Program, Kentucky CancerLink has a resource to offer those in need of mammography services regardless of their inability to pay.

If you are age 50-75 and have not received a colonoscopy in the last 5 years, you are eligible to receive a FREE At-Home Colon Screening FIT Kit (OC-Light).

Call Kentucky CancerLink for more information!

This does NOT replace a colonoscopy, but it is an additional form of screening that can be done yearly.

Appointment times are available from 7:30am to 12:00pm.

  • are heavy smokers, or former heavy smoker (1 pack/day for 30 years or 2 packs/day for 15 years)
  • Quit smoking less than 15 years ago
