Anne and Adriana are both courageous survivors who waged their battles with breast cancer years apart under the care of Maimonides Chair of Surgery and Director of the Breast Center, Dr. Patrick Borgen. They are walking the Pink Runway to honor the life-saving work that he and his team accomplish on a daily basis, and to celebrate a mother-daughter bond that is stronger than ever after having faced and fought this ordeal together. Most of all, they are walking to give hope to all the other pink warriors out there that they can and will survive.

INES ROSALES

Traffic Reporter, Fox 5 Good Day New York
Pink Partner Award

Ines Rosales is the traffic anchor on Fox 5’s Good Day New York. A New Jersey native from Newark and Belleville, she graduated from Montclair State University with Bachelor of Arts degree in 2004. Although she aspired to work behind the scenes, life had a different plan and instead of working behind the camera, she ended up in front of it. Ines joined Fox 5 in April 2007 from MetroTraffic, now Total Traffic and Weather Network, where she worked both as a reporter and camera operator. She controlled the traffic and sky cameras for five New York City television stations. She also served as traffic reporter on NY1, various radio stations both in English and Spanish, and was a freelance traffic anchor for WNBC.

Ines’ parents immigrated from Guatemala in the early 1980’s. She still has a lot of family there and visits as much as she can. She is involved in numerous charities, but especially likes to motivate young people to be successful in life and pursue their passions.

Ines and other members of the Good Day crew became interested in the work of Maimonides, Brooklyn’s largest, most advanced medical center, after their erstwhile colleague – former entertainment reporter Baruch Shemtov – featured us annually at the Celebrate Israel Parade, volunteered with us as Nurse for A Day, and emceed Pink Runway for 2 consecutive years. Ines, who also attended Pink Runway, toured our Children’s Hospital – the only comprehensive children’s hospital in the borough; joined weather anchor Mike Woods in visiting our award-winning Cancer facility – including our innovative Breast and Prostate Centers; and played for Team Maimonides this summer in a Celebrity Softball Battle for Brooklyn at MCU Park, home of the Brooklyn Cyclones, which was hosted by 77 WABC Radio and graced by Good Day anchor Rosanna Scotto as Commissioner of the Game.

We will proudly present Ines with our Pink Partner Award in recognition of her outstanding friendship and participation for the benefit of Maimonides and all the people we serve.
