The Ribbons of Life (RoL) Breast Cancer Foundation is an organization committed to providing breast cancer education, advocacy, emotional, and social support within Ventura County.
To bring into reality an independent Breast Cancer Resource Center creating a warm, welcoming home like environment to assist Ventura County residents struggling with the impact and implications of a diagnosis of breast cancer.
On our way to meet our vision, a group of supporters, thrivers, community members and professional volunteers came together to celebrate our Resource Center Gathering Room. On Saturday, October 11, 2014, our Ribbon Cutting & Open House took place at Barrister Suites, Ventura, CA.
Saturday, November 8, 2014 – BreastFest at Mimi’s
Every second Saturday of the month, RoL meets for breakfast at Mimi’s Cafe in Ventura, CA. There is a short informative program, an information table and a CLOCS Table to celebrate the lives of cancer survivors with a take home item each month.
On odd months, every second Saturday, immediately following the RoL Breast Fest, we meet around 11 a.m. to create items which help us support our community of thrivers and their support systems. We knit, crochet, quilt, sew, sketch, paint, write or create other projects. The Create4Life projects include: ”Care Bags”, “Quilt Project”, “Greeting Cards”, etc. Those who want to learn how to knit, crochet or learn a craft are also invited. For more information, email ROL@RibbonsVentura.org.
