Why We Started saveArose Foundation
Started the saveArose Foundation in Honor of his late spouse/partner Amber Rose Isaac, who fell victim to birth complications stemming from medical negligence on April 20th, 2020. He is now raising his son, Elias, as a single father. Bruce has been vocal about the injustice that happened to Amber and mothers who may also have lost their lives due to medical negligence.
Mr. McIntyre’s saveArose Foundation seeks to eliminate the systemic flaws within maternal health care. He works with the Birthing Community, members of Congress, U.S. Senators, state legislators, City Council members to put pressure on healthcare providers to do something about the high incidence of maternal mortality
Mr. McIntyre has joined with Kamala Harris, the Democratic Party’s vice-presidential nominee, to raise visibility of the message on Maternal Rights for Black/Brown/ Indigenous women. He is working with a collective to bring the first-ever FreeStanding Midwifery-led Birthing Center to the Bronx, and to bring better birthing options to the community. He has also been working on community engagement programs in NYC and North Carolina to introduce programs to the youth to keep them away from gang violence and drug abuse.
