Project Accessibility USA

Project Accessibility USA provides information, resources and services to staff of Susan G. Komen affiliates and grantees across the country to assist them in their efforts to be community leaders in providing quality services to women with disabilities.

While women with disabilities have the same chances of getting breast cancer as women without a disability, data from the CDC and other sources show that women with disabilities, especially those with significant physical limitations, receive mammograms less often than women without disabilities and may be higher risk of late-stage breast cancer and higher mortality.
