The Cancer Services Program of Staten Island
Cancer screening saves lives! Unfortunately, many individuals fail to obtain recommended cancer screening services due to having no health insurance or being
under-insured. If you fall into this category, the Cancer Services Program (CSP) of Staten Island may be able to help.
The CPS of Staten Island has been providing FREE cancer screening for Staten Islanders since 1994. There are no "out of pocket" expenses to participate in the program and services are provided year-round.
