Personal Caregiving Services was proud to have recently participated and donated to the Marnie Rose Foundation and the 2019 Run For the Rose in memory of Dr. Marnie Rose. Dr. Marnie Rose was just 27 and in the first year of her pediatric medical residency at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital when she was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer. Although she passed away in 2003, the Houston community and communities nationwide honor Marnie’s spirit, courage and strength with an annual event that would benefit two causes that touched her life so personally – brain cancer and children.
Since the foundation’s creation in 2003, the unwavering donor support has provided more than $6 million to brain cancer research at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, pediatric health initiatives at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital, and cutting-edge research and treatment for children with brain tumors at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston.
