Christine “Rocky” Ault was a lifelong Hyde Park resident who passed away in August 2014 after a seven year battle with colon cancer. She battled courageously with dignity and grace. Christine showed us how to live passionately and love deeply and we want to honor her life accordingly.

The unexpected diagnosis of a serious illness changes everything. Suddenly, everyday concerns give way to the hustle and bustle of doctor appointments and treatments. Groceries, utilities and gasoline expenses take a back seat to medications, insurance co-pays, etc. Unanticipated expenses like hotel bills and transportation (taxi fares, train fares, etc.) can be an added burden to young families whose lives have already been turned upside down. Rocky Strong hopes to ease that burden by helping with the expenses that can often be put on the back burner during a family member's serious illness. Caregivers or friends and families of caregivers, complete a brief Intake form and indicate what kind of help is most needed. Rocky Strong reviews the application and if approved will issue a gift card or voucher for the requested expense.

Rocky Strong can help your family in the following areas:
Transportation, Groceries, Hotels, Utilities, Gasoline
