The primary focus is for the breast cancer survivors, but they also grant college scholarships to those who have cancer or lost a parent to cancer, support hospital art programs for children with cancer, provide free breast cancer reconstruction surgery to the uninsured as well as, aiding with outreach, research, and grief counseling programs.

ABOUT THE HOLLY ROSE RIBBON FOUNDATION: Founded in 2005 by well-known, board certified Houston plastic surgeon, Dr. Franklin Rose and Silhouette Artist Cindi Harwood Rose, The Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation provides free reconstructive surgery to post-cancer patients who are not able to afford health insurance.

Cindi Rose’s sister, Holly Harwood Skolkin, was diagnosed with breast cancer and recently passed after a long courageous battle with this terrible disease.

After learning of their sister’s illness and that more than 45 million such Americans are without health insurance, Dr. Franklin and Cindi Rose made it their mission to help those in need. Today, the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) organization, underwrites reconstructive surgery for dozens of these patients each year.

A mission that is growing

A mission that’s growing. Since its inception in Houston, Texas, in 2005, the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation, in collaboration with Cindi Rose, Dr. Franklin Rose and Tony Rotondo, CEO of the First Street Surgical Center, has helped breast cancer survivors, including women, men and children receive free reconstructive surgery.
