Reach Out to Rich This site was created to support Rich as he undergoes extensive medical care.

Let me tell you about my best friend Rich Robertson. Rich is the kindest, most selfless and caring person I have ever known. He has a heart of gold and is always willing to help someone in need.

In the years I've known him, he has gone through a lot of adversity, including losing his mother to cancer and losing his brother in a car accident, yet his desire to help others has never diminished.

On December 2, 2008, I suffered a massive stroke which left me paralyzed. Rich put his life on hold, including not completing his college degree in order to help and care for me.

Six months after I suffered the stroke, he was diagnosed with liver cancer. In addition he was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis which means that unless he gets a new liver, he will not survive. He has gone through rounds of chemoembolization, testing and MRIs. Since April he has had an episode of hepatic encephalopathy (known as liver coma) which could've been fatal, he also had an episode of staph infection and to make things worse, his dog was diagnosed with canine diabetes.

On August 25, 2012, Rich received official notification that he has been placed on the liver transplant list.

Rich was there for me during my hour of need. I will be there for him in his time of need, therefore, I'm spearheading this effort to raise funds to cover transplant costs as well as pre and post medical care costs. Please join me in the efforts to give this wonderful human being a chance to continue blessing those who come in contact with him. Thank you in advance for your generosity and may you be richly blessed.
