Welcome to [livejournal.com profile] help_superrobyn!

This community was created on June 16, 2011, to raise funds to assist [livejournal.com profile] super_robyn's upcoming trip to New York City. For those of you who don't know her, [livejournal.com profile] super_robyn just turned 23, and has been battling osteosarcoma since she was diagnosed in 2007. She has been receiving chemotherapy for four years, as well as experimental cancer trials, and has had limb-salvage surgery on her left shoulder. The cancer spread to both lungs. After multiple surgeries over the years to remove the cancerous spots, her doctors decided the best option was to remove her right lung entirely, which was done in December of this 2010.

Five months later, doctors discovered that the cancer has now spread to her remaining lung. Her oncologist informed her that they are nearing the end of treatment options, and that the goal now is to keep her as pain-free for as long as possible.

One of the things that Robyn has always wanted to do is to go to New York City, and she and her sister are planning a trip at the end of July. The goal of this community is to help pay for that trip, much like the Make a Wish Foundation (which Robyn doesn't qualify for since she is over 18), but similar to the methods of [livejournal.com profile] help_japan and [livejournal.com profile] helpthesouth auctions.

Your mods are: [livejournal.com profile] xtremeroswellia, [livejournal.com profile] vval, [livejournal.com profile] speedstergrl5 and [livejournal.com profile] muses_circle.

Feel free to introduce yourselves here if you know Robyn, or just want to leave her some encouragement! :)

If you have questions about the community in general, please ask them here.
