Saving Lives in Southeast Texas

Gift of Life

The Julie Rogers “Gift of Life” Program was established in Beaumont, Texas, in 1994 by Regina Rogers as a tribute to her late mother, Julie, a breast cancer survivor.

The Gift of Life Women’s Breast Health Program was originally dedicated to providing free mammograms for medically underserved women. However, the organization’s services have multiplied to become one of the largest cancer screening initiatives of its kind in the state of Texas – offering free clinical breast exams, mammograms and diagnostic testing, as needed, for women who lack health insurance or cannot afford their high deductibles. Women diagnosed with breast cancer through these services are navigated through treatment by compassionate caseworkers.

In 2000, the Gift of Life broadened its mission with the Men’s Health and Prostate Cancer Program, which provides free prostate cancer screenings, primary care testing and physician consultations to medically underserved men. The Gift of Life pays for all prostate cancer diagnostic and treatment costs for its clients.

Since the organization’s inception, the Gift of Life has diagnosed more than 330 medically underserved Southeast Texas women and men with cancer and navigated them into treatment.
