Locals are Pulling together to help Rhonda Barnes, the drummer for one of our area’s most popular bands, Rockology, as she battles cancer. Dustin Scott, Rhonda’s step son, is taking the lead on fundraising, setting up a page on the YouCaring.com website. From Dustin:
My name is Dustin Scott, my step mom was recently diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. Multiple Myeloma is a cancer of your plasma cells, a type of white blood cell present in your bone marrow. Fortunately it was caught before it was too late, but she has a long fight ahead of her. She has worked at the Sagamore (a beautiful resort in Bolton Landing,,NY) for over ten years. Unfortunately the doctors have said she will not be able to return back to work for up to a year. She has a beautiful daughter Megan (my baby sister) who is 11 years old, she is turning 12 in August. She is going into the seventh grade. Rhonda has been transported to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. Although she is getting the best care in the world and is exactly where she needs to be, life doesn't slow down.. Her health insurance will only cover some but not all, she will be responsible for those bills. This fundraiser is to help with her medical bills, help her daughter Megan so she can continue going to her school in Schroon Lake, NY that she loves dearly, help Megan get down to see her mother, help Rhonda with her other expenses and bills. Every little bit helps and will go a long way! Lets do all we can to help out this amazing mother, friend, sister, aunt, band member, girlfriend and so much more!!
