The Marian Rose Foundation is built on a legacy of living

Kathleen Marian Rose was an organ and tissue donor. When she passed away in 2001, she impacted the lives of 20 people through her organ and tissue donations. Inspired by her mother’s selfless act, Kay Ross – Founding Director – launched the Marian Rose Foundation in 2012 in honour of her late mother.

"My mom helped 20 people when she donated her organs and tissue. She was able to impact so many when she passed, my goal is to use her legacy and during my lifetime to impact the lives of children and ensure their health and wellbeing". Kay Ross – Founding Director
