Help Roby Beat Cancer With Love

Roby is in trouble! She is not well and she needs our help and support! She's been recently diagnosed with stage 3 esophageal cancer. After weeks of exams we finally know that the tumor hasn't spread which means she qualifies for surgery. She will undergo a cycle of chemotherapy (months) then after a few weeks of rest she will undergo surgery to remove the tumor before beginning with another round of chemo.

On top of this she is doing some alternative treatment which is less invasive but more expensive. Since Roby is not working, her income is severely limited and the medical expenses are growing. She needs money for sustenance, alternative medications, and day to day expenses just as transportation to and from the hospital.

This gofoundme campaign is to support me so I can support Roby. Nothing makes Roby happier and provides her a more positive outlook than me being there and supporting her. I anticipate needing to be in London at least 4 more times this year and need to account for my rent and travel. As an independent massage therapist I have the flexibility to set my schedule, however when I don't work, I don't get paid. Donation of airline miles to help cover travel expenses are also welcomed. 

I'm reaching out to my family of friends and loved ones to support me in my efforts to support my dearest Roby. I want to see her make it through these circumstances and to enjoy many more years of love and happiness. Thank you for your support, it means the world to me.
