Poker Run For Daytona Beach Realtor Rose Roberts ~ May 10th

By
Services for Real Estate Pros

It isn't often my 9-5 life and my weekend life blend in together, in fact this will be the first time ever and I will be hanging out in the Real Estate World while wearing my Leathers! 

 We are getting together to help this beautiful woman pictured to the left.

Her name is Rose Roberts, a licensed Florida Real Estate Agent who hangs her license with RE/MAX Property Centre of Ormond Beach.

Rose was diagnosed with Breast Cancer earlier this year. She went in for a lumpectomy, but ended up having a complete mastectomy.

Like many Real Estate agents, Rose does not have health insurance to cover the surgery, chemo and every day bills. Rose is a very successful agent, however one just doesn't jump right back into work after having a surgery like the one she's had. There is a lot of healing involved.

I didn't hear about this through my office. I got an email in February from someone I had never met who was referred to me by the editor of Florida Bikers Digest asking for my help. I explained that I was getting ready for Bike Week and then the St. Jude event, as soon as that was done I would assist in any way I could.

The first thing I did was ask around about Rose. Everyone gushed about her, telling me what a special person  Rose is. I wondered why no one had told me about this sooner. They had a huge garage sale to raise money for her and were working two other possible events.

A week after receiving the email I was at the Broken Spoke hoping to preregister some riders for our Bikes and Blues for St. Jude event when I ran into a Chrome Angel. The Chrome Angels are a group of woman who raise money specifically to help woman with cancer.  I mentioned to her about Rose, she told me that she would talk to the C.A. President and have her contact me, if not I was to contact her. Come to find out Rose was already on their agenda of women who needed assistance with bills.

To give you an idea of Rose's bills could be, Karen George did a post where she included the cost of her chemo on 9/26/2007. She mentions that chemo treatments range between $5,000 and $20,000 per treatment.

Enter the Bikers! A lot of members of the Daytona Board of Realtors®, folks in the mortgage business and new home sales ride so what better way to raise money in our area then a Poker Run for Rose?

Lysa - that's wonderful.  I'm sorry to hear about Rose, but it's very comforting to know that you and the other bikers, agents, lenders, and all are pulling together.  My prayers are with all of you.

Hi Jo! I'm just helping out where I can with this one. RE/MAX Property Centre has done a super job at organizing the events!

Hi Carol, Thanks for your prayers and your support. From what I know about Rose, she's a fighter and will make it through this challenge victorious. :)
