Hello, Robin. I just want to wish you continued support on your unexpected medical journey. I'm the one who did a story about you in the Marshall Independent a few months back. I have to say that you are one brave and special young lady and you serve as an inspiration to so many. I know there are lots of people praying for you, so please stay strong. You appear to have a wonderful family and support staff, so hopefully, you'll get back to where you want to be very soon. Be patient and hold Gods hand the entire time. He'll guide you through anything.

Take Care.

Oops!  The scatter brain strikes again.  Your dad had to remind me that you are being treated at Children's - not Mayo.  Robin, you'll forgive me when you reach my age and suffer from a very wide-spread condition commonly referred to as A.G.E.  At least I remember you're being treated in MN....or is it WI?  Anyway, the flowers are nice and smell good in Minneapolis, too.

Hey Robin.  So you're headed for a bunch of tests and blood draws.  Bet if cc's to cc's were to be measured I'd win the contest this week.  Went hiking in the woods and left the bug spray in the car.  Even got bites through my pants on my bum!  Must have a 1000 bites.  After applying Calamine, I look more like I have Chick Pox. Bet you envision some of the nurses as big mosquitoes.  Don't waste your time trying to swat 'em.  Trust me, they are everywhere and they just keep coming..  Imagine you don't find Mayo much of a cool place.  I can say, however, after spending days and weeks there that it is filled with wonderful history, inspiration and beauty.  Some pretty cool stuff just outside the MRI unit in the lobby.  I'll look forward to hearing what you find this trip that inspires you the most.  And, while you're there - take time to smell the flowers.  The campus is so beautiful this time of year.  I'll say an extra prayer or two and have all my fingers and toes crossed, too.

I am your first cousin once removed (Brian's sister & Aunt Dorothy's daughter) from Florida. I just received a copy of the "Reaching Out for Robin" article from my mother and visited Caring Bridge for the first time this morning. Wow!  What a journey all of you have taken! This website is worthy of donations with the wonderful source for updates it allows. Thank you so much for allowing your story to be shared. You have been in my prayers and thoughts for quite some time. Rosemary & Dale, please let me know when you are ever in Ocala - the home of beautiful horses and only an hour (depending on who is driving) from Orlando.  We would love to have you visit. Ron is asking me to stop writing a book.  Closing with love and best wishes, Debra & Ron Hamed

Hey there, MISS FRESHMAN!!!!  Congrats on squeeking by into the 9th grade (yeah right - a 4.0!!!!! Awesome).  Hope our party was a success as it was last year.  You're setting the bar high in Marshall for end of school bashes.  Quite a tradition.  Can only imagine what the one for your senior year will encompass. So pleased for you that the headaches have ceased and that you continue to tolerate the (nasty, amazing, miraculous) chemo drugs better than you might otherwise. Hope you're enjoying the start of what will prove to be a GREAT SUMMER!!

Hi Robin We just finished reading your journal update and we are so proud of you and your results from school are great. Also to hear how well you are doing with the chemo and the fact you are headache free is even more signs of how well you are doing. We hope your party on Friday goes well and with the support you are getting from school it should be a big hit. We think of you almost everyday and your Grandma keeps us up to date. Please keep the news coming as we look forward to reading about you. Love always Aunt Marlene and Uncle Carl

Hi Robin,   This is your Great Aunt, (LOL) Dorothy, as my one grand daughter told me, "I know, you don't need to tell me" Brian is typing while I tell him what to type, he is really slow sometimes, (Hey wait a minute, can't believe she said that about me) (and I typed it too) just wanted to let you know that we are all pulling for you, and we think about you every day. This is all about me, make it good news when you call me back, OK?   Love you very dearly, best to everyone,   Love your Great Aunt Doe

Good morning Robin, I know your dad through work at Schwan's.  As you know, he is pretty neat and you are very lucky to have him as your dad.  It was evident by the tears in his eyes when he explained your story after your first surgery.  I just wanted to let you know that many people are praying for you (even ones you don't know)!  You are definitely an inspiration with your smile and fight!  Please continue to share your story.  That way we can continue to pray for you and all you have to do is rest and heal.  God's blessings!!!
