ROSELLE PARK, NJ - This town is known for jumping in to help their fellow neighbors when they are in need. Once again a there is a need and this Friday Night everyone is invited to the Karaoke Contest and Silent Auction for resident Melissa Rhodes. 

In October 2018, Rhodes, a 39-year-old married mother of two young children, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  Between chemotherapy, surgery, doctors visit and tests, Melissa and her husband, Chris, have been able to raise a family with their two children CJ, a 5 ½-year-old inquisitive boy and Heidi, a 3-year-old, full of energy young girl.  With the support of their family and friends, they have made every effort to carry on a “normal” family life as best as they can.

“For anyone who knows Melissa, she is a fighter!  She will not allow cancer to bring her and her family down,’ says Joseph DeIroio director of Roselle Park 24/7.  “As a community, we want to support Melissa’s financial needs that come with the costly fight of cancer.”
