They say it takes a village. And we are hoping that those of you who honor our servicemembers for their service and sacrifices will close ranks to help a veteran in need.
Navy veteran Aaron Robinson is battling cancer. Not just any cancer, but Glioblastoma Multiform, the most malignant and aggressive form of glial brain tumors. Medically speaking, there is no cure. But the 40 year old husband, father, and business owner is not giving up. With his biggest cheerleader, wife Jennifer, by his side, Aaron (who served 1993-1997under the last name Roof) has already endured two craniotomies, which confirmed his stage 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme and his stage 3 anaplastic astrocytoma.
Following the removal of two golf-ball sized tumors, and after weighing all of their options, the family has decided to pursue treatment at the Hope4Cancer clinic with Dr. Tony Jimenez and his team. Aaron will receive in-house treatment for 3-6 weeks, with the hope that the non-toxic therapies offered will allow Aaron’s body to fight the cancer cells while maintaining the integrity of his healthy cells.
Of course, this type of disruption in daily life is hard for anyone, let alone a self-employed couple with two children under the age of 15. Thankfully, family members are rallying to help when and where they can, especially with childcare while Aaron and Jennifer are away. But all of this comes with a huge financial impact. And that’s where you come in.
We hope you will take a minute to visit the YouCaring crowdfunding web page, and make a contribution. You might think what you can afford won’t make a difference. But if enough people with the same thought make a contribution, the impact is real.
Thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated, and knowing that they have the support of a village will be of great comfort to this wonderful family.
