Rose Borum's Medical Fund

Donation protected
This Go Fund Me page was started to help our friend Rose Borum with the medical expenses she will have when she receives a much-needed liver transplant. Rose was diagnosed with Non-Alcoholic Cirrhosis also known as Fatty Liver Disease. Her liver had some lesions that the doctors have been watching for a while. Then one of them started to grow and she had a biopsy done. It was Stage 2 Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) and her doctor decided she needed a transplant.
I have known Rose for over 33 years, and she has become part of my family. She is one of the kindest, most caring people you will ever meet. She would literally give you the shirt off her back. But you don’t have to take my word for it. This is what others say about her:

“Rose Borum is a very kind Natchez resident. Each company Rose has worked for during her career, she left with a great reputation of being dependable and highly efficient. Rose is always willing to lend a hand to those in need. Rose is a widower and does not have any immediate family. Now, she is facing this challenge of having to have a liver transplant due to cancer. Rose attends work each day giving it her all.” ….Jackie.

“I have the privilege of being a dear friend of Rose Borum. Rose is one of the most compassionate, sincere, giving persons I know. Rose always has a smile, even when she is in pain. It is my prayer that Rose soon receives her much anticipated liver transplant which will allow her to be a gift to us all.”…..Valencia.

“Rose is a genuine soul, a beautiful person who lights up any room that she enters. She’s kind hearted and is always willing to help others in their time of need.”….Mary.

Here is Rose’s point of view- “The word CANCER has even the biggest, strongest man or woman quaking in his or her boots. There is the fear of the unknown and what will become of you. I maintained a healthy lifestyle before I was diagnosed. I didn’t get my Cirrhosis from drinking or drugs. It was so puzzling. I was approved for the Liver Transplant List in December 2022. After the transplant I will be on anti-rejection medication for the rest of my life. I just want to return to my normal everyday life.”

We appreciate any help you can give her. I think our friend Michael said it best-

“Natchez has been the home for Rose for most of her life. She has been part of so many lives in many ways. Much to her reluctance, we, her loved ones, friends and family are reaching out to our community for her. Recently, Rose was told she will need a liver transplant very soon. In her humble way she has prepared herself for that call. Now is the opportunity for you to offer your help to her. Please donate to this life-saving fund. Rose could use your show of friendship and love. Support Rose in her time of greatest need. Show her what is in your heart. Please donate to help her now. Show her you care.”


Eternally Grateful.
