She also participates in the Women's Business Alliance, Carrollton Civic Woman's Club, and American Business Women’s Association.

Rosie was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003. Since her recovery, she has dedicated herself to the West Georgia community and those suffering from breast cancer. Her organization, Hope for the Journey, has assisted over 300 women. Rosie’s dedication to God, family, her organization, and the community is remarkable.

She received the “Keys to the City” award in 2010 for her outstanding dedication to wellness in the community.

Our Vision

At Hope for the Journey, our vision is to create a community that supports and uplifts those fighting breast cancer, because no one should fight alone.


Our Mission

We wish to give hope to those facing breast cancer and those walking the journey with them.


Our Programs

Programs include providing financial assistance, counseling, spiritual support, and insightful knowledge through our support groups and programming. Our organization strives to empower those women that have and continue to fight breast cancer.
