A Kansas mother of five recovering from losing all four of her limbs is now receiving lots of love from her hometown of Lucas.
It started as a kidney stone for 33-year-old Yeney Rosado, but it quickly became a deadly infection that spread throughout her body. Doctors had to amputate her arms and legs in order to save her life.
The town of Lucas and the school district where her kids attend are rallying around the family to help.
"That's what's surprising," said Rosado's husband Kelvin Lopez. "We're not used to that. We are very grateful. It means a lot."
Rosado and Lopez' children range in age from 18 months through 17 years.
"With all the support from everyone, it's great," said step-daughter Stephanie Lopez.
If you'd like to help the family you can send donations to the Bennington State Bank of Lucas or Sylvan Grove.
On March 11th the school will be holding a fundraiser beginning at Noon in the elementary school gym.
