Rodizio Grill Launches Nationwide May Fundraiser for Image Reborn Foundation

Foundation Aids Breast Cancer Survivors

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - May 1, 2013) - Rodizio Grill launches a nationwide May fundraiser for Image Reborn Foundation's "Living Beyond Breast Cancer" program. Image Reborn Foundation was started by plastic surgeon Dr. Renato Saltz. Image Reborn's mission is to help breast cancer survivors reclaim their sense of personal power and strength by providing weekend retreats at no cost to participants that focus on living beyond breast cancer.

"Image Reborn was founded by my good friend Dr. Renato Saltz," stated Ivan Utrera, President and Founder of Rodizio Grill. "He saw a need that was not being met and started this organization that is now in its 14th year! Throughout this course he has helped hundreds of women regain their lives. I could not be more proud to be associated with this organization."

Dr. Renato Saltz is president of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the first Brazilian to hold this position. He began the Image Reborn Foundation in 1998 and Rodizio Grill has been a sponsor from the beginning. Image Reborn retreats take place in Park City, Utah. The program includes: counseling support groups, education regarding treatments, both conventional and integrative approaches; nutrition; exercise and massage therapy; and more.

"We put these women through all of the treatments and surgeries that fix their bodies, but find that they still are very sad when they come back to the clinics for checkups," stated Saltz. "Some have family issues that are still unresolved. Many go through divorce or lose their jobs and have problems with their children, especially their daughters whose bodies are in the process of developing or have already developed. I realized that there was still a lot for these women to deal with that we, as physicians, weren't addressing."

Throughout the month of May, guests of Rodizio Grill will be able to donate to this cause when dining at their local Rodizio Grill location. Rodizio Grill currently has 13 locations in 11 states, with two more locations scheduled to open in May 2013 in Las Colinas, Texas and Allentown, Pennsylvania. Donations can be made via cash or credit card. One hundred percent of the funds raised will be donated to Image Reborn Foundation. For more information, guests can visit or
