Introducing Ozarks Healthcare's Mobile Mammography Unit
Protecting your health through early detection and prevention.
Ozarks Healthcare's Foundation has launched a fundraising initiative for a mobile mammography unit. 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.
Why go mobile for mammography?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women in the U.S. (some kinds of skin cancer are the most common). Finding breast cancer early reduces the risk of death from the disease by 25-30% or more. Women should begin having mammograms yearly at age 40, or earlier if they're at high risk.
Many women put off getting a mammogram due to inconvenience. Studies also show women who are underinsured or uninsured are 35 percent more likely to have a mammogram offered by a mobile mammography unit versus going to an outpatient setting.
Your donation to our mobile mammography unit could help save the lives of friends, family, and neighbors.
To learn more or make a donation, please call the Ozarks Healthcare Foundation at 417-853-5200 or contact Josh Reeves, Vice President, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 417-247-0415.
