Please help Robyn

UPDATE: Robyn has generously donated Dick’s prosthetic leg to an amazing Foundation called Limbs for Life. I am so proud of the strength and grace she has shown during this awful time.

A heartfelt thank you to all of you who have sent so many loving texts and emails concerning Robyn. I am forever grateful for your love and generosity.

For those who don’t know, Friday, January 26th, my sister Robyn's husband Dick suffered a massive stroke and passed away peacefully at St. Luke's Hospital in Boise, Idaho on January 31st. 
I am creating this fundraising campaign on Robyn's behalf. Sadly, in the midst of grieving the loss of her husband, she has learned that Dick made no financial arrangements for Robyn's future. Everything that he had is held in a trust that is inaccessible to Robyn. As you all know, Robyn has been caring for Dick on a full-time basis for the past 5 years, leaving her unable to work outside of the house.
As embarrassing as it is, I am asking you to please consider showing your support of Robyn by helping her out during this transitional time. 
Robyn is hoping to find a job locally and be able to stay in our beloved Wood River Valley.
