Please Help the Ross-Rutter Family

I am setting up this fundraiser on behalf of the Ross-Rutter family. Their beautiful mother, Sundee, fought a long, hard battle in the past year with breast cancer and survived! She continued to work at her job at Ross Dress for Less throughout her treatment as she was the sole provider for her six beautiful and amazing children.  Due to all the cancer treatments, Sundee didn’t have much left in the way of an immune system. Unfortunately and tragically, She contracted the virus that is making the news lately. ( I can’t say the name of the virus otherwise fb will delete the post). She fought valiantly until she could not fight any more. She lost her battle on March 16, 2020. She is preceded in death by the father of her children. This has not been an easy road for these kids. They have been through a lot in the past several years. Sundee was an absolutely amazing mom and instilled only the utmost of values in her children. I have never known a group of siblings who stick together and take care of one another as much as these kids do. The oldest three are in college and the youngest three are in high school and middle school. Tyree, the oldest of the family, graduates from college in June and will be trying to secure housing so that he can finish the job of raising his siblings that his mom could not. Please help support this family to get some housing set up and for whatever else the family may need in the coming months. They are still looking into funeral arrangements and a Celebration of Life for Sundee in the future. They are a proud family but they touched so many people’s lives that I know many want to help in any way they can. Below, I have posted what Sundee’s eldest daughter, Alexis, wrote about her mom when she set up a fundraiser to help the family during her battle with cancer. I could not have described Sundee as eloquently as Alexis did. Please message me or Sundee’s sister, Shawnna Loomis-Olsen, on  Messenger if you would like to help in other ways. Thank you so much! 

From Alexis: For those of you who know or have ever crossed paths with our mother, Sundee, it was likely made clear to you immediately how genuine, selfless, courageous, hard-working, and caring this woman is. She is always the first to lend a helping hand to those in need and has consistently remained positive and resilient through the many curve balls life has thrown her way. As a single mother of six children (ages 24, 21, 20, 15, 14, 13), She has made it her highest priority to instill in us all of the amazing and upheld values and morals she possesses, with high hopes that each of us are able to make positive changes and impacts on our friends, family, and community. 

Lets help Sundee continue her dreams for her children. Thank you!
