A Local At Heart
Inspired by personal events regarding breast cancer in his family, Dr. Ridgway founded the Larrabee Center’s LATISSE® Eyelash Program in 2010. The pro-bono project dedicated to the treatment of breast cancer survivors is aimed at helping cancer patients return to their previous lives and restore a sense of self. Each patient that has been enrolled is direct taken under Dr. Ridgway’s sole care. The project has grown from the collaboration with our medical colleagues at the Swedish Cancer Institute and with the early help of nurses Rhonda Jack and Maryln Wilson. Patients are enrolled into a 16 week program for the restoration of hair loss around the eyes and brow complex. The program has been described as a “bow on top of the gift of the life” that has been provided by the Swedish Oncology teams. We are grateful for the generous contributions from Allergan, Coloratura and Jeri Morgan-Reiner as well as the patients who are so generous in their trust and inspire us with their strength.
