The Rose is a Houston-based nonprofit breast health care organization, and its mission is to ensure that all women have access to early detection of breast cancer, regardless of their ability to pay. With two locations, The Rose offers mammography screening, breast cancer diagnostics and The Rose Empower Her Sponsorship Program. This program ensures that patients have access to these services and to a patient navigation program that provides the support systems (physicians, chemotherapy, radiation and/or surgery) needed to overcome the hurdles that prevent any woman from getting into treatment. These services are free to those who cannot afford the costs. The Rose is a beneficiary of community organizations including the Susan G. Komen Foundation and Pink Ribbons Project. Additional support comes from events such as The Rose’s Annual Shrimp Boil, which just celebrated its 15th anniversary, and its first annual golf tournament.
