Testimonials for the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation

Since the organization’s founding dozens of patients have benefited from the Rose Ribbon Foundation. Today, these patients are known as Roses – women who embody a kindred spirit of renewal, growth and beauty. Once selected as a candidate, a Rose can expect assistance with medicine, childcare and loss of wages incurred because of one’s surgery and recovery time. In addition, Roses receive plenty of psychological support and emotional encouragement along the way.
