If I were deathly ill and had been told that a heart transplant was the only viable option for prolonging my life, taking care of someone else would seem inconceivable to me. Meet someone who did. Rosie looked after her elderly mother while she was fighting for her own life until her mother was laid to rest in the fall of 2005. Rosie received her heart transplant a few months later. I admire her strength, perseverance, and heart. I also admire her youthfulness; she is in her early seventies but looks much much younger!
