IPAD for Mama Rosa (Rose K)

Rose is an incredible and inspiring woman. Against all the odds she keeps rising from the ashes of life again and again. Many of us know Rose from creative circles, many of us have been entertained by her iconic Mumma Rosa, and many of us have just enjoyed and been blessed by the love and care we receive from her when visiting at her cafe Patanella. 
Rose has just recently found out she has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. Now whilst no brain tumour in its right mind should take on our Rose because she is that strong, resilient, and amazing, and the overwhelmingly likely outcome is a complete cure ... it is still a harrowing process to walk through and a bit of a kick in the guts with lots of flow on implications to day to day practical life. 
Rose is a giver not a taker. I’ve never encountered anyone that has ever had a bad or even average word to say about her. Rose just radiates love, care, energy, and fun. She is a pure joy to spend time with. Now Rose might kill me or heap some Italian curses on me for doing this but I would really like as many of us as possible to just bless her, set her on her new creative path and ventures, and show her not only do we have her back, but the universe does too (sorry atheists). So I  am hoping we can join together to raise enough for an iPad and accessories, and if we go beyond she will just have a bit of a cushion to see her through the next few months with medical expenses, recovery etc. 
I know life is about others, reaching others, loving others. I know Rose lives this like no other I know. 
Lets get behind our Rose and love her back.
