OHC Foundation Truck Raffle for Mobile Mammography Unit

In conjunction with its fundraising initiative for a mobile mammography unit, the Ozarks Healthcare Foundation is raffling a 2021 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 Truck from Toyota of West Plains. Proceeds from raffle tickets sold will benefit the Foundation’s initiative to purchase a mobile mammography unit in 2022 to help make routine screenings more accessible for women who might not otherwise have access to this service. “We appreciate the generosity and enthusiasm toward our campaign shown by Toyota of West Plains,” Josh Reeves, Vice President of Development at Ozarks Healthcare, said. “Proceeds raised from our truck raffle will be used to help save the lives of friends, family, and neighbors, which is always our focus as a community health system.” 
Tickets are $100 and may be purchased online at https://www.ozarkshealthcare.com/ or by calling the Ozarks Healthcare Foundation at 417-853-5200. The raffle winner will be drawn Dec. 24. Tickets are limited, so those interested in purchasing a ticket are encouraged to buy soon.

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 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. Annual mammograms are the best way to detect breast cancer in its earliest, most curable stages. 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.
The Ozarks Healthcare Foundation, established in 1998 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) with a local board of directors, serves as a liaison between donors and Ozarks Healthcare to assist the hospital in providing excellent healthcare to the communities it serves.
