« Healthcare Highlights October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and WVUHealthcare is doing its part to promote awareness and provide services to detect and treat breast cancer. The Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center is leading the fight against this disease in West Virginia. It’s a frightening statistic: one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women, but with early detection, many people can continue to lead a normal life. We encourage women age 40 and older to talk to their doctors about when to get started with mammograms. Bonnie’s Bus Mobile Mammography Program will be making stops around the state through October. Bonnie's Bus is a mobile mammography unit that travels to sites across West Virginia, offering on-site breast cancer screening in a comfortable, convenient environment. Check the schedule to see where Bonnie Bus will be visiting this month. The Betty Puskar Breast Care Center (BPBCC) provides the highest level of breast care. Our comprehensive approach includes a wide range of services, including screening mammograms, minimally invasive biopsy techniques, and breast conserving surgery. The Breast Care Program at WVU is fully accredited through the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers, having fulfilled and even exceeded the standards set by the NAPBC.
