Jeanne Robinson is being treated for life-threatening cancer. An article on Spider Robinson’s website explains the situation:
Earlier his year a brilliant surgeon, Dr. Andresz Busczowski, helped Jeanne Robinson beat back a rare and virulent form of biliary cancer. But it’s so rare even he can’t say how much time he‘s bought her, how soon it might recur-and her latest blood tests have been so discouraging they’ve now decided she needs to start chemotherapy as soon as possible.
The Robinson’s don’t have the resources for all that’s needed, so Jeanne’s friends and neighbors have stepped in to help raise the funds. They’re staging a benefit concert September 18 at Cates Hill Chapel on Bowen Island in British Columbia. And people can send PayPal donations to http://wedreamforjeanne.blogspot.com/.
