Bishop Parents of 3, Both Diagnosed with Cancer, Need Our Help
I’ve been fortunate to know the Rosga family for a number of years now. Scott and his wife Aritzia have three children. Their oldest is Matthew, a junior attending Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids Mi. He is majoring in Strategic Communications and plays baseball. Sara is a junior in H.S., plays Volleyball, and is interested in Criminal Justice, Andrew is a sophomore, and plays baseball. They have volunteered in many capacities within the community, from fundraising to chaperoning and everything in between.
I remember Scott coaching Baseball at Big Pine during the years, I attended there. He coached for twenty-plus years, even though, he didn’t have a kid who played. He didn’t do it for the money, he did it for the love of the game and to teach not only baseball but life skills to his players. He always told them, they are representing themselves, their families, their team, their school, and their community. Aritzia could often be seen at the ball field cheering them on. Soon his son, Matthew started tagging along from about the age of three or so.
They say life isn’t fair, and they’ve had more than their share of stormy weather the past few years. Scott was diagnosed with leukemia several years ago and coupled with some other serious health issues and injuries. He has not been able to return to work for a couple of years. Aritzia was diagnosed with metastatic colon cancer in Sept. of 2020. , she will never be able to return to work. However, it has taken a toll on them mentally, physically, and financially. They have handled this with a tremendous amount of faith, and determination. They are going to lose their insurance benefits for the month of Sept., and maybe October as well. They could use your help at this time.
