As you consider your year-end gift-giving, please take a moment and meet a few of the women who have turned to The Rose for quality breast health care. Thanks to Rustie Salazar of Breakaway Photography and Dale Samuelsen of Sweetwater Video we have a wonderful new tool for sharing our story!
Survivor Helps Put a Face on Young Women to Benefit from 6th Annual BABC
The Rose Co-Founders Dorothy Gibbons, CEO, and Dr. Dixie Melillo are joined by Jane Thomas, 32, an Alvin resident who, with the help of The Rose, found her breast cancer in October 2012. Jane is one of the Women of The Rose to be featured at this year's BABC event. As a Certified Nursing Assistant working for a small company, Jane was without insurance. But she knew the impact of the disease as she lost her grandmother to breast cancer when her grandmother was only 45 years old. Jane was undergoing treatment during last year’s BABC and will be facing reconstruction surgery this year. Pictured also is Jane’s boyfriend JJ Rodriguez who shaved his head in support of Jane and donated his hair to Locks of Love in her honor.
