my friend Robin lost her battle to cancer tonight. Her family called me about 9:15 pm and said she had just passed away just a few minutes earlier. I am so sad for her kids. They are 14 and 10. Robin has been so sick for so long. I remember when she got the phone call from her mammogram 6 years ago. She had found a lump on her own and went to the dr. The mammogram and ultrasound confirmed her worst fear - breast cancer. She had a masectomy soon after that and started chemotherapy and radiation shortly after. She was one of the unfortunate ones where it metasized to her hip and spine. She always was positive that she would beat it. It had been exactly 6 years to the month. The last month has been the hardest on all of us. She just wasn't able to fight anymore. It had gone to her liver several months ago. I will miss Robin so much. We've been friends since Emily & Shelby were in pre-school together and I liked her right away. When we moved to FL, I kept in touch with her, Mary and Lorraine. We would all go out to dinner when I would come back to visit which was twice a year. The 4 of us ... always went out. We sure had alot of laughs. Now it will be 3 of us... that will be so odd. I will miss Robin!!! PS Robin was ONLY 41 years old.
