Rose's Healing Fund

Welcome to Rose's GoFundMe page.

Rose is a creative, giving, wonder-filled human and a mother to four little ones aged 10, 5, 3 and 1.

On May 25th, 2017, Rose experienced a sudden onset of chest pain that landed her in urgent care. After receiving an unclear diagnosis, she headed to the ER, where she discovered that a lobe of her left lung was collapsed. A pulmonary specialist determined that she had a large mass between her heart and left lung.  

A CT-guided biopsy of the mass led to a diagnosis of Hodgkin's Lymphoma on June 19th. Three days later, Rose learned that her cancer is stage IIA. 

Rose begins her treatment journey on Thursday, June 29th with her first round of chemotherapy. The length of her recovery is unknown at this time, but the doctor's best guess is six months. After two months of chemo, she will undergo scans to evaluate the response, which will determine the next course of action.

Rose is a recently single mother.  When her medical issues began, she took a leave of absence from her job teaching children's nature classes. This GoFundMe was created to provide Rose with the financial support she needs so that she can focus on rest, healing, and her kids.  

These funds will be used to help with any uncovered medical and holistic/complementary health therapies, as well as living expenses, house upkeep, and child care.
