Pink Roses Teal Magnolias: Join the Movement
Pink Roses Teal Magnolias is more than just a fundraiser for breast and gynecologic cancer. This annual brunch, now in its 10th year, has grown into a powerful healing movement, raising money and awareness and empowering cancer survivors and those impacted by the disease.

Since 2010, Pink and Teal has raised more than $5.5 million to fight women's cancer. In this anniversary year, we intend to raise one million dollars . It’s bold. It’s brash. And it’s absolutely essential. Our movement needs resources to find a cure for women’s cancer once and for all. 

Whether you have supported Pink and Teal for years, or are new to our cause, we are all in this together. No one fights cancer alone. Join the fight!

Q&A with Bonnie Mehr
Bonnie Mehr is the Director of Integrative Oncology Services and the Dr. Diane Barton Complementary Medicine Program at MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper.

Learn more about Bonnie:

Why did you pursue a career in healthcare?
A career in healthcare wasn’t my original plan, but providing support to people when they need it most has become my passion. This led to the Dr. Diane Barton Complementary Medicine Program which has helped thousands of survivors through their cancer journeys.
What do you like most about your position at Cooper?
I like that no two days are the same! I work with cancer patients and survivors and I am always humbled and inspired by their grace, humor and hope.
What inspires you?
A random act of kindness inspires me because it can really change another person’s day. I’m also inspired when a patient rings the bell to celebrate the end of a hard, courageous journey!
