The Legend is in the biggest battle of his life currently.
The legendary Robby Robinson posts about his life-threatening battle with Sickle Cell Anemia while he lays in the hospital. He recently experienced an episode which unfortunately proved to be too much for him to handle and at age 73, it’s getting more and more uncertain as to how we will respond.
His condition results in red blood cells being abnormally shaped which makes it difficult for them to transport and supply oxygen to the rest of the body.
Here’s the Instagram message he wrote detailing his history with the sickness…
