About The Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation:
A mission that’s growing. Since its inception in Houston, Texas, in 2005, the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation, in collaboration with Silhouette Artist Cindi Rose, Houston Plastic Surgeon 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.
The Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation was formed as a 501(c) (3) with a mission to improve the emotional health of those with critical illness by providing free reconstruction, to both uninsured and under-insured individuals, of all ages and both sexes. Yearly, twelve to fifteen people receive free breast reconstruction from the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation. All the money donated goes directly to the patients, including their total hospital cost, all nurses, medicines and other doctors. Recently, the foundation has included non- human hair wigs, comfortable robes, pillows, permanent eyebrows and psychological support to those with critical sickness.
For more details on how to become a corporate sponsor, or to provide items for our silent auction, please contact Chyra Blackaller, or Cindi Rose.
