Help for Rosalee Baker & family

Rose is a woman well known to us at the Saint Luke’s Multi-specialty clinic in Leavenworth, KS.  We know her as the hardworking, janitorial custodian who we have come to know and love.  She has been working through some grave circumstances lately and we would like to raise some financial assistance to help her, unbeknownst to her. The funds will go towards her medical expenses and living expenses for a family of five. She has never asked any of us for help nor has she ever complained about her condition.

Specifically, she has been battling advanced lung cancer (advanced non small cell lung Cancer/malignant pleural effusion, peritoneal carcinomatosis) since at least February 2017, when she was first hospitalized for her condition.  The cancer is terminal and has now spread to her breast, abdomen, and liver. Rose has exhausted almost all treatment options. Despite this, she has worked almost non-stop through all of it including when she was undergoing chemotherapy. She has an amazing work ethic. As one receptionist recalls, “I have seen her many evenings come to work when she was sweating and looked too weak to function, yet she was here doing her job. And all this with a smile on her face...she has NEVER complained about her condition."

Rose will no longer be able to work, as her condition has made her too weak and short of breath. She is upset she can no longer do her job. She has been a Saint Luke’s Hospital employee for twelve years. She is facing some tough financial circumstances, including loss of income and possible termination of her life insurance. It is doubtful that she has disability insurance. She is the main provider in her household of five individuals, which includes her two grandsons. She does not have anyone to depend on financially. 

Rose is a sweet and kind person. We at the Saint Luke’s Multi-Specialty clinic hope by creating this gofundme for her we can raise some funds to alleviate some of her financial burden. Any contribution is well appreciated. 100% of the donations collected will be given to her, after the gofundme processing fees. I know this will be a huge blessing and surprise for her. Thank you!
