LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Hayley Robic, daughter of University of Kentucky assistant coach John Robic, is reaching out through social media to find a donor as she battles liver cancer.
Hayley posted on Instagram that she has been battling the illness over the past couple of months. She encourages anyone who could be a match for herself or others in need to sign up on the Living Donor Registration site.
“These past several months have been the hardest of my life,” Hayley said via Instagram. “After having emergency surgery, I’ve been diagnosed with liver cancer. Because of that, I will be getting a liver transplant and am in need of a donor. If you are interested in being tested to see if you’re a potential match, I’d be so grateful.”
Members of the sports community have come together to share Hayley’s message, including UK Men’s Basketball head coach John Calipari and basketball sportscaster Dick Vitale.
