Friends, Family and fellow musicians are uniting to help raise funds to help Robert Poe (Ponella) in his battle with stomach cancer. Anyone who knows Robert knows what a caring compassionate person he is.

Robert has an extremely generous spirit and is always there for others. Robert has touched many people's lives through his music, actions, deeds and humor. Whether saving an injured animal, singing for seniors at nursing homes or visiting young children at schools, spreading the joy of music and his passion for healthy eating, Robert’s compassion and generosity know no bounds.

Robert recently took in a stray cat that faced a life threatening disease. Not only did Robert care for the cat but he searched to find the right doctors who would eventually perform a complicated surgery to save the cat’s life. Robert even started an online fundraiser just like this one to raise money to fund the cat’s surgery.

Who could have predicted that just weeks later Robert would be the one needing our help.

Robert has an initial surgery this Friday. He will be starting chemotherapy next week and is facing a major surgery to remove the malignant mass in his stomach and the surrounding areas. We are all in shock by this and our thoughts and prayers are with him.

We ask for your help today so we can try and lighten the load for Robert as he tries to get through this unexpected and difficult time. At this point Robert is unable to work due to a myriad of doctor appointments. Between going to Oncologists, Surgeons, GI doctors and having to get numerous scans, all of which he needs to travel to NYC for, life is extremely difficult for Robert right now. Medical bills, copays, hospital costs, travel fees have already piled up.

Any contribution you can possibly make will make a huge difference during this traumatic time.

Thank you so much for your generosity.
