Story of Hope on Charlotte Today Show

Featured on Charlotte Today’s Story of Hope sponsored by Levine Children’s Hospital on Tuesday, January 18, 2012, Trish shares her story of hope regarding her husband Eric and the foundation they created.  After learning about Eric’s brain tumor in 2010, the couple decided to make that moment count; while adjusting to a “new normal,” Trish and Eric decided that “the best way to beat cancer is to reach out and help others.”  With Trish’s background in education as a teacher at Charlotte Country Day School, she realized that there was a great need in the world of pediatric cancer.  Rohr Rockstars was founded and Rohr decided to “help the kids and support their education while they are going through treatment.”

“Education offers hope.  It is a promise of a bright future and when we can support them with their education, we are saying to them that this {cancer} will only be one moment of your life.”

Watch the entire interview {below} and see how Trish shines like a Rockstar speaking with passion and dedication.

Remembering a Rockstar

Claire Elizabeth Ratliff
August 30, 2009 - January 17, 2012

Speechless and heartbroken at the passing of this precious child.
But rejoicing that she is pain-free and cancer-free in heaven
with a Heavenly Father that loves her beyond our comprehension.

We are all blessed to have known her and loved her 
during her short, but inspiring life.

For those who suffer,
and those who cry this night,
give them repose, Lord;
a pause in their burdens.
Let there be minutes
where they experience peace,
not of man
but of angels.
Love them, Lord,
when others cannot.
Hold them, Lord,
when we fail with human arms.
Hear their prayers
and give them the ability to hear You back
in whatever language they best understand.
-Margaret A. Davidson

Bald is Beautiful

Rock on!  

Rohr Rockstars founder, Trish Rohr, on baldness and coping through play.

"Inspired by her husband's battle with the disease, her work with kids who have cancer has shed new light on what it means to be bald: It's not the disease, it's the attempt to fight it.
"It's our body's sign that we're launching this battle, so I think using toys to convey that message is really powerful," she says."
