Help Catherine Robinson & her family

In late October 2021 Catherine Robinson (née Shanahan) began experiencing constant, agonising, stomach pain. By early December this bright, vivacious 32 year old was shockingly diagnosed with peritoneal, liver and lung cancer.

Catherine is originally from the lovely town of Tralee in County Kerry, Ireland. She grew up on the outskirts in Ballyroe. At the age of 20 she headed to Portugal where she met and fell in love with Dan and has called the Algarve home since. They are frequent visitor to Tralee where Catherine has lots of family and friends.

Catherine will start chemotherapy at Portimão Hospital in January.
 
Many people in our local Algarve community have expressed their desire to offer support to Catherine, her husband Dan and two children, Sofia (age 5) and Serena (age 1) who are much loved by all.
 
Money raised will relieve financial stress for the young Robinson Family as neither Catherine nor Dan are able to work right now and both were previously self-employed. The intention is for money to sustain their living expenses, cover the additional costs of vital medicines for Catherine, transport to hospital appointments and much needed alternative therapies to complement the chemotherapy. It will also help provide Sofia and Serena with clothes and toys while their Mommy is sick. There is also the potential for private treatment in the battle to help Catherine overcome this disease.
 
Any financial donation that you can make will be greatly appreciated. The Robinson Family are pivotal in our community and this is a chance to give back to a wonderful bunch of humans.

Information GoFundMe has insisted I include as of 13.01.21:
1. My name is Adam Rich and I live near Burgau.
2. I am a friend of Catherine and Dan Robinson.
3. The funds will be spent on their living expenses while unable to work, extra costs of medicines, transport to hospital appointments, alternative therapies and private health care for Catherine.
4. Funds will be sent directly to Catherine and Dan Robinson on the 1st of each month (unless they request otherwise).
 

Em meados de Outubro de 2021, a Catherine começou a queixar-se de dores agonizantes e constantes no abdómen. No início de Dezembro, esta alegre, vivaça jovem de 32 recebeu o chocante diagnóstico de cancro no peritoneu, fígado e pulmão.

Catherine vai iniciar tratamentos de quimioterapia no Hospital de Portimão ainda em Janeiro.

Muitos elementos da nossa comunidade local expressaram o desejo de ajudar a Catherine, o seu marido Dan e as duas filhas, Sofia (5 anos) e Serena (1 ano), que são muito queridas por todos.

O dinheiro angariado servirá para aliviar o stress financeiro da jovem família Robinson, uma vez que nem Catherine nem Dan têm condições de trabalhar neste momento e são ambos trabalhadores independentes. A intenção é de que o dinheiro sirva para apoiar as suas despesas correntes, cobrir as despesas adicionais de medicamentos essenciais para a Catherine, transporte para o hospital e terapias alternativas muito necessárias para complementar a quimioterapia. Também servirá para ajudar a providenciar roupa e brinquedos para a Sofia e a Serena enquanto a sua mamã estiver doente. Existe ainda o potencial para tratamento privado na batalha para ajudar a Catherine a vencer esta doença.

Qualquer donativo que possam fazer será grandemente apreciado. A família Robinson é um pivot na nossa comunidade e esta é uma oportunidade de retribuir a um fantástico conjunto de seres humanos.

Informação que a GoFundMe insistiu que incluíssemos a 13.01.2022:
1. O meu nome é Adam Rich e vivo perto do Burgau.
2. Sou amigo da Catherine e do Dan Robinson.
3. Os fundos serão gastos nas suas despesas correntes enquanto estiverem impedidos de trabalhar, gastos extraordinários com medicamentos, transporte para o hospital,  terapias alternativas e cuidados médicos privados para a Catherine.
4. Todo o dinheiro angariado será transferido directamente para o casal no início de cada mês (a menos que nos solicitem de outra forma).
