Ritchie Regional’s Harrisville Campus hosted Bonnie’s Bus - a 45-foot, state-of-the-art mobile mammography vehicle - in their parking lot March 17 - March 18, 2022. The bus provides breast cancer screening throughout West Virginia, especially in rural parts of the state with limited or no access to screening mammography. Bonnie’s Bus is an invaluable program that RRHC proudly supports.
The bus offers mammograms to individuals who fall within screening guidelines in a comfortable, convenient environment. Screening is provided for women, men, transgender, and gender-diverse people with private insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, or those who qualify for the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program. Uninsured patients living in West Virginia who are age 40 and older can receive a screening mammogram on the bus through the generosity of grant funding and donations.
Bonnie’s Bus was created in honor of Bonnie Wells Wilson, who died of breast in 1992 because she lived a rural area of West Virginia and didn’t have access to screening mammography. Bonnie’s daughter and son-in-law, Jo and Ben Statler, established Bonnie’s Bus in 2009 with a generous donation to help prevent other families from losing a loved one to breast cancer.
Since 2009, Bonnie’s Bus has:
