A dear friend of mine Roseann was a 6-year breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed in 2014. She did it! Roe beat breast cancer! She had an amazing support system, her family, friends, co-workers and a community of support behind her. Roseann has 2 beautiful children, a daughter AnnMarie and a son Nicholas. She drove a school bus in her local community. She was very much involved with making a difference. Always started each and every day with a heart filled with kindness, compassion and gratitude for all her gifts in this life.
In 2019 Roseann was now facing another cancer diagnosis. She was diagnosed with a rare appendix cancer that only 200 people in the world will be diagnosed with every year. This time the cancer came back with a vengeance! It had spread to her colon and stomach as well. Roseann’s cancer diagnosis metastasized to stage 4. She was now facing a lifetime of treatments. Roseann still continued going to work every day, even on treatment day. WOW! She is a WARRIOR.
There is no cure for stage 4 metastatic cancer.
I went to visit Roseann in Hospice to say my final goodbyes. Although donations today will not save our family and friends, previous donations were instrumental in making my friend a survivor and extending her life for additional years.
Roseann passed away on July 9, 2020.
On September 25th is Roseann’s birthday. We will be honoring her by joining together in a celebration of her life. This year would have been Roseann’s 50th birthday. We are asking you to join us by making a donation so we can continue helping to create more birthdays.
I know the profit lines are small, but I would appreciate it if you would find it in your heart to make a donation to celebrate Roseann so in the future, we don't have to go and say our final goodbyes to people we love.
I would personally like to extend my gratitude and thank you for supporting our mission.
“No one fights alone”
