The Julie Rogers “Gift of Life” Program was established in Beaumont, Texas, in 1994 by Regina Rogers as a tribute to her mother, Julie, a breast cancer survivor, who had a double mastectomy in 1988 and who died following complications from a stroke and heart attack in 1998. Originally dedicated to providing free mammograms for medically underserved women, in the past twelve years, the organization’s services have multiplied and the agency has grown into one of the largest cancer screening initiatives of its type in the state of Texas.
In 2000, the Gift of Life broadened its breast cancer mission to include prostate cancer, offering free screenings and educational presentations for men.
Since the organization’s inception, the Gift of Life has diagnosed nearly 250 medically underserved Southeast Texas women and men with cancer and navigated them into treatment.
