Sarah Robinson. Daughter. Wife. Mother. Sister. Aunt. Niece. Granddaughter. Friend. Entrepreneur.In 2019 Sarah’s story changed drastically, in ways that would forever affect her and those around her. After going to the hospital with what was expected to be a run of the mill gastroenteritis, Sarah received the most devastating news. She had cancer. Colon cancer at 34. Cancer 2 years after getting married and in the middle of law school. Cancer after finally getting back on her feet and looking forward to life after the sudden unexpected death of her father that left her so crippled years earlier.The cancer was initially thought to have been caught early and treated successfully with surgery alone. A touch of chemotherapy out of an abundance of caution. Unfortunately, the cancer came back in Sarah’s liver. Why not a little portal vein embolization before a major liver resection followed by another promise of remission? More chemo, second line, then third, then fourth. Drains and drains and drains.Sarah has fought hard and with beauty, grace, and courage. Sarah has been keeping the details of her illness very private, in an attempt to keep those closest to her protected at all costs. Unfortunately, Sarah’s battle has taken a turn and she is no longer able to work.
