Rosie lost her mother, Mary Castro, to Covid-19 in May 2020 and she put her own grief into action by starting Yellow Heart in January 2021 with the goal to humanize the number of lives lost that were reported daily. She is now a full-time advocate for Covid victims, long-haulers, and Covid orphans. The healing from this three-year pandemic is only just beginning.
