Comfy Joey Fundraiser for September 2011

I am was not asked to post this I am not being paid I wanted to share the story of this one family and do all I can to help. If you can not purchase a baby sling can you take a moment to share this story on your facebook or twitter and share this family's story with your friends who maybe will. Getting this information out there will help this family.

Life can deal a twist of fate that no one can plan for or imagine. Bruce Rosenberg (40) a father of two precious children (Ella 13, Lucy 5) and husband to Julie; has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Melanoma Cancer. This aggressive form of cancer is considered terminal in most cases, but Bruce is not most people. He is young and has been in great health to this point. That is until his life was turned upside down.

A little over 6 months ago he was diagnosed with this cancer and currently he has undergone 3 major operations to remove the affected areas, but the cancer is still advancing. Out of work, his company has not fired him but has discontinued his benefits; leaving the family to have to pay for Medical (Cobra Coverage) and his life insurance on their own – this amounts to $1,500 per month above and beyond their normal household expenses.

Furthermore they are seeking treatment in one of the nation’s leading cancer centers, Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa FL. Being over 800 miles from home does take a toll on the family and the household finances. Bruce is fighting for his life and is undergoing a trial treatment called IL2. Although this treatment is dangerous, it does hold hope for a cure. Both Bruce and Julie need to focus on this fight and not the funds to keep their home and life a float, and that is where you can help this family in need!

We would appreciate all effort in spreading word about this fundraiser and promoting it among your family & friends. Feel free to copy/paste in an email, network, blog, Twitter, share on Facebook and post in community forums. Please help spread the word and share this with everyone you know. Thank you!!

This is a community effort organized by family & friends of the Rosenberg Family:
