The friends and family of Donald "Chuckie" Robinson are trying to raise money to help with the hardships of his battle with lung cancer

Almost a year ago, my husband was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. While he was home for a few days, he was having trouble breathing so I took him into the emergency room. They hopsitalized him for congestive heart failure and it was at that point that they found the mass in his adrenal gland. Up until that point, he had made a living as an over the road truck driver. He then had to have surgery to remove a tumor which hosted the secondary cancer which was in his adrenal gland. After the surgery is when they discovered the primary cancer was actually in his lung. He had to stop driving and go through a slew of doctor's appointments and treatments. He's already been through his first round of radiation and chemo, and is now on his second round of chemo. He gets really sick from the chemo and since he has been out of a job the bills have begun to pile up. His temporary disability has run out and he gets less than $500 a month on permanent disability. We are struggling to pay for transportation to and from his treatments and doctor's appointments. We are also struggling to pay our bills and rent due to his inability to work and his need for constant care from me. We currently own our mobile home but have to pay the space rent and the utilities that are attached to it or be in jeopardy of losing our home of 17 years. We would truly appreciate any and all donations. Thank you for taking the time to read this and God Bless you.
