Cards with a Cause: Mammoth Spring Student designs Greeting Cards for Ozarks Healthcare Foundation’s Mobile Mammography Unit Fundraising Campaign

The Ozarks Healthcare Foundation is offering custom-designed breast cancer awareness greeting cards for purchase thanks to the artistic talent of Carly Russell, a seventh grade student from Mammoth Spring, Arkansas.

Designing greeting cards for all occasions, Russell decided to make a special line of designs decorated in pink, the signature color of breast cancer awareness, and words like “hope,” “strength,” and others to show support of breast cancer survivors, those currently battling breast cancer, and women who will benefit from the services of Ozarks Healthcare’s future mobile mammography unit. Ozarks Healthcare's Foundation launched a fundraising initiative for a mobile mammography unit in October of 2021. The goal is to raise funds to purchase a mobile mammography unit in 2022 to help make routing screenings more accessible for women who might not otherwise have access to this service.

“We are honored Carly thought of our fundraising initiative while creating these beautiful and inspiring cards,” Josh Reeves, Vice President of Development of Ozarks Healthcare, said. “Just like our mobile mammography unit, we know these cards will spread hope throughout our community and beyond.”

Cards are available for purchase for $6 each at the Ozarks Healthcare Foundation, which is located at #12 Parkway Center in West Plains. Carly is donating a portion of each card sale to the Foundation’s mobile mammography unit fundraising campaign. Cards may be purchased by check or cash during the Foundation’s business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Cards will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Carly is the daughter of Sandy and the late Steve Russell of Mammoth Spring.
