“Hi everyone, With a heavy heart, I am saddened to announce Robyn’s passing. However, she is no longer suffering and would want us to remember that and the good memories. I will never forget how open she was to telling her story and accepting of me helping her tell it. She wanted to help people and spread the word of her story to do it. I was honored to do so. RIP my friend, I love you and smile when I think of you.”
Griggs had been battling cancer since 2020 and on July 7 she posted herself that her condition was not improving.
“Unfortunately, I have 4 new tumors,” she wrote, “2 new tumors on my liver, one on the abdominal muscle, and a large one on the right side lymph node. So in pain and I go to chemo Monday am. I told them whatever it takes, I’m in for the fight. I’ll be very sore, nauseous, etc., but who knows, maybe it works and relieves some pain. You never know. Please keep those prayers coming. Hugs to all!!!”
