About Just Call Me Ray
In 2013, Raylene Hollrah was diagnosed with cancer for the second time by the age of 40. Just six years earlier she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She quickly learned that her second diagnosis was caused by the breast implants used in her reconstructive surgery. Determined to bring awareness of the dangers of breast implants, Raylene started the Just Call Me Ray organization in the fall of 2013.

Fundraising for Just Call Me Ray is a year-round task done by hosting several annual events and receiving individual and corporate donations. Today, the organization raises money to help cover the cost of mammograms for those without sufficient insurance coverage and provides hope and support to those struggling in the later stages of cancer. Through Just Call Me Ray, Raylene is also able to share her first-hand knowledge of the dangers associated with breast implants and her rare cancer diagnosis (breast implant associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma).
