Dr. Dixie Melillo's dream -- a place that cared as much for the uninsured woman as the insured woman -- has been a reality for more than a quarter century. On August 2 at the 25th Annual Shrimp Boil, we plan on celebrating the life of this visionary, doctor and healer. You can be a part by helping us reach our $250,000 goal. Click here for details.
25th Annual Shrimp Boil To Honor Co-Founder of The Rose & Raise Needed Funds
For nearly four decades Dr. Dixie Melillo has held the hands of patients receiving the harshest of news, beamed as breast cancer survivors returned to her in gratitude for their navigation to treatment, and garnered the respect and admiration of colleagues, area businesses, donors and funders. As co-founder of The Rose, a nonprofit breast health organization now serving 25 counties, she’s received awards and accolades nationally and internationally. And on August 2 at the Pasadena Convention Center, she will be celebrated in style – Dr. Dixie Melillo style that is -- at the 25th Annual Shrimp Boil.
