Then the unexpected happened as it often does. Robison had some mental issues. In his words from his blog
Robison has been very upfront about his illness and how he handles it. I, as well as others, have benefited from the information and courageous example in dealing with one of the taboo subjects in our culture.
In fact Robison and his family are the type of people who make me okay with paying more in health insurance as part of "Obama-care" as he and his family were able to get health insurance for the first time in a while.
Oh yeah did I mention that he recently had a Cancer biopsy on his ear?
Went to the dermatologist for my ear. If thy right ear offendeth, cut it off.Now why do I tell you this? Well Robison posted this on this blog:

So this is a call out to those who follow here to help someone in need. I could throw out some scriptures, for those of you who are religious, or make reference to when you help us buy a water buffalo for others in need. But I'm not going to guilt you into doing anything. Instead I'm going to put the options out there, tell you what Ashley are going to do, and trust you to do what is right.
1. Buy Robison's books. I really liked the Variant-Feedback series they are fast paced and fun. They are great YA suspense books. The latest is Blackout and a novella Going Dark. Get them on Amazon: Variant, Feedback, Blackout and Going Dark.
2. Give directly to Robison via the donate link on his blog; at the bottom of this post.
Now since Ashley and I already own the first series of the books I've purchased Blackout and Going Dark and I'm excited to read them. Not that I needed a reason to get them but this helps move them up to the top of the list.
Also we are in a position to give so I'll sacrifice some of my dinning out in the next couple weeks to help Robison.
I often think that trials happen to other people to allow for the rest of us to become better by helping. Robison's willingness to ask for help has provided that opportunity, and I for one are going to take it.
