My name is Kelli Hill and I'm here to tell you about my best friend's mother Roslyn Rose aka "Momma Rose". She was diagnosed in 2015 with stage 4 colon and ovarian cancer.
As you all know, (or should know) Momma Rose would give you the shirt off her back and help anyone in need. Being around her for over 20 years I have seen her help the homeless, start a non-profit to help the fight with HIV/AIDS, work extremely hard with other non-profits, picking up strangers, donating and always volunteering. Momma Rose has been an advocate for EVERYONE. Momma Rose even has a Proclamation Day in Houston in her honor for countless volunteer hours... December 20th
Her heart is big but her fight is even BIGGER. By the looks of Momma Rose, you would think she is in perfect health because she is always smiling and trying to stay involved. The fact is...Momma Rose is fighting and she is fighting HARD. Momma Rose has defined the doctors by overcoming obstacles with her treatment plans.
As a Nurse, I know how expensive medical bills and medicine (not covered by insurance) will get. This does not include doctor visits, parking, hospital stays, ER trips and did I mention medicine for fighting 2 stage 4 cancers.
It's time for Momma Rose to take some help because we know she will not allow us if we asked! Cancer runs off certain things and one of them is STRESS. We want her to focus on the fight, not bills. I'm asking you all to please help me and reach our goal of $5K to help in the fight with Momma Rose.
I'm asking you all to do 2 things:
1.) Donate ... any amount counts
2.) Do NOT ask Momma Rose what is it she needs. She will not tell you (hint this is why I'm doing this) so just donate.
