Hometown Hero: Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition

Hometown Hero

Tonight’s Hometown Hero is the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition.

Thanks to the coalition, a bill that would save women’s lives just passed the state Senate this week. It aims to require insurers to cover more breast cancer screenings for some women.

Mammograms are not as good as MRIs and ultrasounds at finding cancer when breast tissue is dense, but currently, insurance won’t always cover those screenings.

The bill now goes to the house.
