For those who don’t know about the Greens and their presence in the Amherst, MA community, enjoy listening to Mr. Green’s recent interview last year.

Robert and Dorothy Green, longtime Amherst residents and owners of Amherst Typewriter and Computer, are experiencing difficult times financially and health-wise. We are putting a call out on the strength, unity and benevolence of the community to rally in support and help them pull through.

Dorothy Green has been dealing with a neuromuscular disease and her health has deteriorated drastically.  She was first at Cooley Dickinson in Northampton, then Baystate in Springfield, and now she is at Mass General in Boston and is recovering from surgery.

Because she is in the intensive care unit, Mr. Green is unable stay overnight with her and requires accommodations outside of the hospital. His vehicle is inoperable and Mr. Green must rent a car to travel back and forth to Boston.  

Established in 1976, the typewriter and computer repair shop in downtown Amherst has been a fixture in the community for some time and the Greens are longtime residents of the Pioneer Valley. Mr. Green suffered a stroke four years ago and since his wife’s medical emergency is unable to keep the shop open since October.


Please give what you can to help ease the financial burden of the Greens, so Mr. Green may focus on Dorothy's full recovery.

Supporters of Dorothy and Robert Green:

Two days ago I received a phone call and an email from Mr. Green.

Some of what he shared is below:

Hi Dee,
Dorothy is not doing well at all. She has been back to Mass General. After she was examined, they found out that she has pneumonia. She developed several other problems and is now being treated for them. Dorothy was placed on a series of antibiotics eventually sending her back to the rehabilitation center to treat the infections.

As for me, I had to go back to Cooley Dickinson Hospital in Northampton twice because of my problems with cancer and the stroke that I suffered previously. Things have gotten to a critical state impairing me to the extent that I can barely walk or stand without aid.

In spite of all that we refuse to give up, in or out..
With GOD all things are possible. We will prevail!

Thanks for your help and concern
Robert Green
