Run For The Rose

Thursday, March 31, 2016

ABC-13 is proud to sponsor the 14th annual Run for the Rose. Since 2003, the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation has donated more the $4.75 million from its Run for the Rose to adult brain cancer research at The University of Texas MDAnderson Cancer Center, pediatric health initiative at Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital, and the Dr. Marnie Rose Professorship in Pediatric Neurosurgery at McGovern Medical School.

Who is Dr. Marnie Rose?

Marnie was a 28-year old pediatric resident at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth when she passed away from what is considered one of the deadliest forms of human cancers, a glioblastoma. Marnie died on Aug 23, 2002. Marnie's mission was to put a human face to brain cancer and to give strength and optimism to those who were ill. She succeeded beyond her wildest expectations and made us all better people for having known her.
