This October, Bounce Energy is proud to partner with The Rose, a Houston-based nonprofit organization focusing on delivering quality breast cancer pre-screening care and treatment to uninsured women across Texas.

Long before the pink ribbon campaign became a national movement, Dorothy Weston Gibbons and Dr. Dixie Melillo fought for more extensive breast cancer education, treatments, and awareness in Southeast Texas. Throughout the early ‘80s, Dorothy and Dr. Dixie noticed an increase in women being diagnosed with late-stage breast cancer. However, education and access to treatment during this time was lacking.

As a result, the two co-founded The Rose, the first non-profit whose mission was to cover the cost of the uninsured and provide state-of-the-art breast cancer treatment to women across Southeast Texas. Now almost 40 years later, The Rose offers some of the most innovative breast cancer screening and diagnostic services including mammograms, ultrasounds, biopsies, and access to treatment throughout the region.

In order to support patients across the great state of Texas, the team has developed Mobile Mammography vans to deliver unparalleled treatment and services. Since its launch in 1986, the organization has served almost 500,000 patients and provides support to 35,000 women annually. The Rose is not only one of the region’s top breast cancer research and treatment providers, it’s the home of a vibrant community.
