Breast Cancer Survivor (R) Salute the Ribbon's Founder (L) at the Paint the City Pink Breast Cancer Walk 2016. Miami, Gardens, Florida

Meet Our board

I don't know what we would have done without the help of Salute the Ribbon and this amazingly hard working women (Rena Day)!!! You see, my fiancé had throat cancer and had the maximum doses of radiation a human being can handle. The treatment killed and infected all of his teeth. Upon a dental visit, we were told that all teeth must be removed or the infection would kill Gino. For 8 months we have battled with Medicaid and Medicare to help Gino to no avail. This organization SALUTE THE RIBBON, and this amazingly diligent woman ( Rena Day ) did in 2 days, what myself and Gino couldn't do in 8 months. He now will get the help he and all people deserve... Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Rena!!! You are a god sent. Keep up the grand work!!! You are a blessing and a soldier. YOU ARE OUR VOICE WHEN WE WERE SILENCED!!! Bless your work.

" Thank you for visiting Salute the Ribbon" 

 "This journey has given me an opportunity to meet diverse people and develop relationships on personal levels. I will create a personable experience with each person that seeks assistance. It is my hope that through this journey people with cancer will restore faith, courage and strength. Please remember you are not alone in this fight!! Fighters never QUIT they WIN."

Love always, Rena

Salute the Ribbon was founded in 2014 by Rena Day after a decade of struggling to find programs with a seamless process in place for uninsured and underinsured individuals who desperately needed medical services in a timely manner. 



STR understands that many Americans will have access to health insurance whether private, state or federal.  However, some uninsured and underinsured individuals will be faced with the challenges of living without the proper medical care. Our hope in action is to implement innovative programs to improve access to cancer care and preventative services in a timely manner.
