Lloyd and Robyn Joy’s family experienced a series of setbacks this summer. Both Robyn Joy and Thomas had abdominal surgery in July. Meanwhile, Lloyd had severe neck pain that kept him on bed rest and led to major neck surgery in September to remove and replace three vertebrae that were destroyed by a bone infection.

After a week in the hospital, Lloyd was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma (MM). The MM compromised his immune system, causing the infection, which led the doctors to the cancer that may not have been found so soon. It is a lucky break in a way, but it is still an incurable disease that they will need to stay on top of for the foreseeable future.

Here's where that all leaves them:

• Lloyd was out of work for three months due to his cervical spine surgery. His hours at work are currently inconsistent because of what is available and what he is able to do when hours are offered. Lloyd is tolerating chemo well so far. He will be completely out of commission for three to four weeks (minimum, maybe more) in early spring when he has a stem cell transplant.

• Robyn’s surgery over the summer used up all of her paid time off and FMLA. She is slowly rebuilding PTO hours, and their family is managing on her wages for now. However, before their recent setbacks, they were already living paycheck to paycheck without savings.

• They have fallen behind on credit card payments and are in the process of filing for bankruptcy which will give some relief. There are legal fees associated with this, and they have also used credit to supplement living expenses, so they will no longer have that to fall back on.

• Their health insurance has so far paid for the majority of their healthcare expenses. However, their surgeries this summer put them in arrears of about $2500. With the office visits and lab charges that keep coming, this total may climb higher.

• Lloyd’s mom is in Denver with stage four cancer that is being treated palliatively. They don’t know how long she has, but it is less than a year. In October, a friend helped Lloyd get a plane ticket to see his mom. Because he can't travel after his stem cell transplant, Lloyd would like to be with his mom again soon. In addition to the flight, he is hoping to stay at an economy hotel within walking distance to his mom, so he can spend more time with her.

• Robyn and Lloyd were recently blessed with a free and safe car. While this is immensely helpful, a car does create an added expense. In addition to regular maintenance and gas, there was state tax and registration to get it legal, snow tires, and a chip in the windshield that needed to be repaired.

Neither of Robyn or Lloyd accepts this kind of help easily. (I had to BEG to set-up up this page.) However, they are staying afloat because of the generosity of people in their lives, and they are both beyond grateful for that. Throughout this all, Robyn and Lloyd are still their amazingly humble, sweet, awesome selves. If you're able, please consider helping them through this rough time and share this campaign through your social media channels.

In addition to this funding site, there is also a site with blog updates and a calendar where they are posting things you can help with. If you are not able to contribute, Lloyd and Robyn encourage you just to follow along and offer support in the form of messages and check-ins.

Latest Update

Hi Friends, We apologize for the group thank you message to those of you who have contributed, and we will reach out individually when we are able. We just want to say, WOW. We feel loved and held and grateful. We've also heard that some folks are having trouble with either this site or our helpinghands/update site (https://my.lotsahelpinghands.com/community/lloyd-robyn-joy-and-thomas). Please message Robyn (robynjoy76@gmail.com) if this is the case. Again, we knew we lived in a special community, but the last few weeks have definitely proven it to us. XOXO
