The Women of The Rose Book

The story of mammograms, miracles and a Texas non-profit that beat all the odds.
The Rose Book The Women of The Rose Book

From its humble beginnings in a tiny office in a strip mall, The Rose now serves 40,000 people a year, women from all walks of life, from huge cities or small rural communities who face falling through the cracks of the healthcare system. This is the story of how The Rose was born and how it survived, a story of strong, determined women who did whatever it took to care for one another. It is the story of shrimp boils and skydiving, of pink goats and the pain of watching so many die. It is the story of unfathomable generosity, unexpected corruption, and the hard truth about who can afford healthcare and who can’t. It is a story about the power of believing and a salute to the courage and tenacity of women.

Thank you for your generosity that allows us to continue our shared mission. You are now a part of our story and your gift will help us continue our mission of saving lives through quality breast health services, advocacy and access to care for all.

Now serving 40 counties in Southeast Texas, The Rose continues to be a leader in breast health care, providing screening, diagnostics and access to treatment to all women regardless of their ability to pay. Last fiscal year, The Rose cared for over 40,174 patients, 6,982 of whom were uninsured women sponsored by generous donors like you.

We wish you could be here to see the faces of our patients when they are told there is hope. We wish you could be here to hold their hands through treatment. And we wish you could be here the day they are told they are cancer free.

The good news is we are here for them. And as long as we continue to have the support of donors like you, we will be for thousands more.

Your gift has given another woman an equal chance at survival. Every life is precious. Every woman matters. Thank you for helping The Rose provide dignity, courage and grace to so many women.

Because you care, she lives.
