A noticeable face was absent from the Kentucky bench last night.
Kentucky assistant John Robic was not occupying his usual spot on the bench last night, but for good reason, as The Athletic’s Kyle Tucker reports that Robic was with his daughter, Haley, in Pittsburgh as she seeks medical treatment after being diagnosed with liver cancer.
Haley was diagnosed with the disease months ago and has been seeking a potential donor. John Robic said he couldn’t be more thankful for the support of the Big Blue Nation since the news has been made public.
“The support for her has been great,” Robic told Seth Davis of The Athletic. “I can’t thank everybody who reached out enough.”
If anyone is interested in being a living donor, they can do so here.
Let’s continue to keep the Robic family in our thoughts and prayers during such a difficult time.
