Kentucky Sports Radio’s Jack Pilgrim reported tragic news Thursday evening. Haley Robic, the daughter of Kentucky basketball assistant coach John Robic, has been diagnosed with liver cancer. Robic is seeking a donor, of which you can apply to be a potential match at this link. Cancer has touched nearly every human being on the face of the Earth in some form or fashion, with every situation an up-hill climb. I believe I can speak for all of Big Blue Nation that Hayley, John and the rest of the Robic family could use as much support as possible from Kentucky fans across the world. Please keep their family in your prayers.
