Rosie is a woman of faith, courage, and determination. She is also a mother of three, and a grandmother. She encourages you to support her organization and cause.
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.
We wish to give hope to those facing breast cancer.
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.
If you're interested in volunteering at our Luncheon in the Pink, our support group or other events, please contact us. We'd love to have your help!

Raul G. Zuzunegui, M.D.
I am a breast surgical specialist. Being involved with the Hope For The Journey organization allows me to contribute and participate in more than just the medical aspects of breast cancer care. It is very satisfying to be involved in an organization that is doing so much to help women with breast cancer in our community.
