This is Personal! Save Roban

We appreciate you taking the time to stop and find out about Roban’s story and her health. She has been diagnosed (December 3, 2019) with a rare terminal blood cancer (Multiple Myeloma) stage 3 and kidney disease stage 5. She is a single mother with a 13 year old daughter and has a 7 year old tuxedo cat named Kitty Soft Paws Mona Lisa Lampkin that is an important part of their family as well. Unfortunately Kitty can not stay in the home since Roban is undergoing chemotherapy. Thankfully she is staying with Bayeh at her dad and step-mother's (James and Tamara) home and they are treating her just like family until she can return.
Roban is a student teacher completing her credential to become a middle/high school science teacher. When diagnosed she had six weeks left in the program. She was also told she had six weeks left to live without proper care. Since then she has been receiving chemotherapy and fighting for every day she can to be here. During this time she has been so well taken care of and the first person by her side was her ex mother-in-law Gaynell (Nanny). She has been the catalyst in getting Roban help. They went to many ER and Urgent Care together and were sent home with improper diagnosis and no help. Finally November 27th Roban woke up with excruciating pain running through her finger and up her hands so Nanny drove her to Los Alamitos Hospital ER and stayed by her side everyday she could. Since then many friends and family members have stepped in to help as well. All help in any manner has been a blessing . With your generosity and kind heart to donate whatever you can or share this fundraiser we can help Roban, her daughter and their sweet cat Kitty to get through these tough times. Thank you so much. ❤️

*Thank you to Tiffany Beebe King for volunteering to begin this campaign for Roban. Without your help this may not have been a successful start and quite possibly may never have been started in the first place. Thank you to Louise Carter (Nana) who has been staying with Roban since February and taking care of her, quarantining with her before it was popular and driving her to the hospital for chemo. Most of all thank you to Bayeh for your understanding, kind heart, unselfish spirit through not only her mother's diagnosis but a worldwide pandemic and most recently rioting and protests. More than any 13 year old should ever have to think about at such a young age. Love to ALL of you that are not mentioned but have also played such important roles, you are not forgotten.
