Everyone who loves Rose Sweet-Pinard is uniting to raise money to help with her battle against breast cancer. Please show your support!

Rose is my best friend and the bravest person I've ever known. 7 years ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was struck with her courage and unwillingness to portray herself as a victim. She just carried on and lived her life. She didn’t let cancer win.

Last week Rose found out that she again has breast cancer. While her prognosis is good, she still has to face surgery and recovery. She will need all our positive wishes and prayers.

In typical Rose fashion she is more worried about how much work she is going to miss than about herself. As much as I try to tell her to just focus on herself I know she won't do that if she's worrying about paying bills. I was trying to figure out how I could help but I just couldn't think of anything she would accept.

I was at Price Chopper and the cashier asked me to donate a dollar to some charity and it struck me that I probably donate something like $5 a week to these various charities without even knowing where the money will go or anything. It got me thinking why not give that money to Rose. And then I thought that there are so many people who love Rose and would love to help her through this difficult time. We all can’t be there for her in person but we can help her get through this financially. This website is for donations for Rose's bills so that she can take the time she needs to get herself well. I will also post updates on Rose's progress.

Please support Rose. Why not give directly to someone who can use it. Why Not Rose?
