Cooking with Rose

navywatercolor-brush-stroke-4-26-1024x661.png

Rose (or as many people know her, "Momma Rose") lives at Mercy Housing’s Timbercreek Apartments in Omaha, Nebraska. Over the past six years, Timbercreek has been a solid and stable home for Rose as she faced many personal challenges and tragedies.

Cancer was one of those challenges.

Several years ago, Rose was diagnosed with uterine cancer. It was a scary diagnosis, but she was thankful for her doctors and their treatment plan. First, it was surgery, then chemo and radiation therapy. The treatments Rose received left her exhausted with little energy to enjoy the things she loved most — helping others. She had lost all motivation and had become very isolated.
