Shortly after Thanksgiving Rosemary was hospitalized after her daughter Beckie Edie grew concerned for her mothers health. Unable to stay awake or walk on her own she was admitted into the ICU for further testing and later diagnosed with COPD. She now requires continuous oxygen. In order for her to return working to support herself, she needs to purchase a portable oxygen tank . That has a long battery life and is light weight and runs by producing its own oxygen. Although she has health coverage they do not cover the portable tanks that would allow her the freedom and mobility she must have to return to work again.
