Robin's Battle to overcome throat cancer

Robins initial fight began in 2011 with her 1st battle with throat (Laryngeal (Larynx) Cancer which left her with a permanent tracheotomy after radiation and chemo treatments. Robin has had many new issues that started earlier this year but with Covid 19 it was hard to get some of the testing necessary completed and just recently she was told she once again has Throat Cancer but this time it is Stage 4 and many of the issues are caused from the initial radiation used along with return of cancer. Robin will need to undergo extensive surgery and this time they will remove everything including the tumors, lymph nodes and larynx which will leave her unable to speak.  Due to her throat skin area being removed also skin graphs will need to be done. They will remove the skin from her breast to graph onto her throat area. She will also be getting a feeding tube put in this week as she will not be able to eat or drink.  The feeding tube formulas that she will need are costly as we know from past.  Robin's medical bills for her procedures and medicines are just a starting to pile up and she has not even had the surgeries yet.  We are raising funds to help her with medicines, surgery bills, co pays, liquid food, gas, and future placement of a possible voice device so she can speak. Robin thanks you so much for any help you can give.
