Tiffany Dawn Rose

In July of 2007, my cousin Tiffany was diagnosed with a stage 4 brain tumor -glioblastoma multiforme. Tiffany was 26 and single. Thankfully, my aunt Sandy, was able to leave her job and stay by Tiffany's side every day since.

Tiffany fought hard. We all prayed for a miracle. We wore our "Kill Ted" (the tumor) t-shirts and bracelets to show our support as Tiffany underwent radiation, chemo, and multiple surgeries.

Tiffany passed away peacefully at home early this morning. I know she is now at peace with our Father in Heaven. She will never have to suffer again. Still, my heart aches, because I will miss her. I feel like my life is better for having known her and for experiencing firsthand the love she shared with her mother. Tiffany is survived by her mother and stepfather Sandy and Rob Temple, her younger brother Brad Rose, and her father Harry Rose.
