Mini golfing fundraiser to be held for Steven Robinson
A mini golf fundraising event held starting at 7:30 a.m. on Aug. 10 at DJ Golf Center located at 273 County Rd. 60 in Waverly, N.Y. to benefit Steven Robinson.
Robinson is an avid bowler, and he and his wife Kathy do DJ Karaoke around the Valley and surrounding areas. Robinson has helped his community in many ways; he served as a volunteer firefighter, and was an IV/EOA tech with the Greater Valley EMS. He taught CPR and coached modified softball. He coached youth bowling at the Valley Bowling Center.
Robinson lost his voice box due to cancer in October 2012, after his second run with throat cancer. There are a lot of medical expenses due to this procedure. He has to travel to Strong Memorial Hospital's Wilmot Cancer Center in Rochester on an average of one to three times a week; the local hospitals say his case is too complicated. To enable better breathing and a form of speaking again, he has to purchase voice prosthesis' and other medical supplies which are costly, and most are not covered by insurance.
Robinson's wife left her job of 11 years to be his caregiver when the cancer was first discovered in August of 2011. She has been able to continue the DJ Karaoke job with the help of family and friends. Robinson has been able to accompany her to several shows.
Join organizers for this fundraising event as they support Robinson and raise money for medical expenses. He has to travel from his home to Rochester, N.Y. due to the surgery that he just received. The event will help offset the cost of the expenses.
If you're unable to attend, donations can be sent to Hope for Recovery, c/o Nancy Mott, 1766 Elmira St., Box 303, Sayre, Pa. 18840.
