Medical and living expenses for Rosie!

I am here to try to raise money for a wonderful friend, family, and a co-worker.  About 14 months ago she was able to beat throat cancer and came out stronger than ever!  On Aug 23 she found out she has Pancreatic Carcinoma Stage 4, which they recently found out has already spread to her liver.  After going to cancer care she was given 2 options, one option is no chemo which will give her between 4 to 6 months to live or otherwise she can take chemo and have between 18 to 36 months to live.  The family has decided to try the chemo and Rosie said as soon as the chemo makes her too ill she will most likely come off of it.  Rosie has been in the union for 22 years in the local steelworkers union 338.  She has made family and friends at Kaiser since she joined the union.  She has been my neighbor for over 10 years now.  Rosie and her husband brought me and my wife and children in like we were family as soon as we met them! She has 3 children, 4 grandkids and number 5 on the way. This family has one of the biggest hearts I have ever got to meet and now I am here to try to raise some money to help pay bills and medical expenses and to possibly help them out in any way shape or form! Mark and Rosie have been donating to St Judes hospital for many years now. And now her family and friends have come together to try and help in any way and just to be there to see Rosie's beautiful smile and listen to her amazing laugh! I have recently found out her husband had to quit his job that would keep him away from home for nights on end so that way he can be with her.  He has found a job that's closer to home to help pay the bills.  And that is why i am here asking for help to bring the family home as much as we can for as long as we can!!  Thanks to everyone that can help financially or with thought sand prayers so that they know how much they are loved!

Thank you!
