Early detection saves live!  

The Cancer Services Program is a New York State Department of Health grant-funded program that provides breast, cervical and colon cancer screenings at no cost to eligible men and women.

Genesee, Orleans, Wyoming and Niagara Counties Cancer Services Program (CSP) partners with health care providers in all counties, so cancer screenings can be done close to home. Providers include doctors’ offices, clinics, hospitals and labs. Enrollment is done confidentially over the phone, making enrollment just a phone call away!
