If you've ever heard a film review on the One of Us podcast network, or more particularly the Deliberations of Doom horror show, you've probably heard the voice of critic and gore connoisseur Patience Robinson-Campos. Now she's facing a life-threatening illness, and the call has gone out for urgent assistance while she waits for a transplant.
Robinson-Campos has been a fixture at Austin press screenings and behind the mic for several years; but yesterday, her sister Melinda Hunsaker posted this statement about her situation:
As many of you know my sister Patience was diagnosed with liver disease which within a month turned into liver failure. She has been declining at a rapid rate and given 48 days to live. Her family was able to help her apply for benefits which are in the process of being approved. She will be transported to Houston to undergo treatment and wait for a liver. In the meantime the bills are astronomical and out of pocket per night is around $5,000 for her until benefits kick in. We cannot wait. Every minute counts right now. I ask that you band together and help us fight along side Patience.
You can contribute via the GoFundMe page established by Hunsaker. Due to the generosity of donors, the fund to help Robinson-Campos and her loving husband of 20 years, Carlos, with the massive bills they face is already halfway to its overall target of $25,000.
