    Dept of Health and Human Services (HHS) Ofc on Women's Health has removed Breast Cancer pgs; Internet Archive has them

    The HHS Office on Women's Health has removed webpages related to breast cancer and ways to receive free or low cost screening via the Affordable Care Act. (This is one more way that 45 is trying to kill the ACA.)

    However, the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine has preserved those pages at:
    https://web.archive.org/web/20161208093811/https://www.womenshealth.gov/breast-cancer/index.html

    Please share this information so that people can get the care they need.

    I've checked the pages myself. The Ofc of Women's Health site still has pages related to cervical, ovarian, and uterine cancers. Its A-Z Directory includes breast reconstruction after mastectomy, but NOT breast cancer.

      ChicagoSandy, you don't know what I believe.

      There are people on this site who've said they are stressed and can't sleep after hearing about political news---furthermore, it's not necessary or appropriate on a cancer support website. People have left the site because of it, and everyone should respect the fact that this is a site for PATIENTS. (ACS)

      Any cancer news is welcome without the extraneous political digs.

      This site is for cancer patients and their caregivers seeking cancer information and guidance from fellow patients. "Support" isn't just about "feeling good." Anything that impacts our cancer treatment and survival is germane--and if certain leaders with the power to influence health care policy do so in a way that affects us cancer patients adversely (while paying only lip service to their Constitutional duties), we should not be forced to shut up about it.

      It's previously been discussed that others go to political websites to discuss political views. Interested cancer patients can go there also, but cancer patients who don't want to be around POLITICAL ANGER AND INSULTS shouldn't have to be subjected to it.

      The negativity is the issue, and we don't want it.
