LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Hayley Robic, the daughter of University of Kentucky basketball assistant coach John Robic, has said via social media that she has been diagnosed with liver cancer and is searching for a donor.
“These past several months have been the hardest of my life,” she said via Instagram. “After having emergency surgery, I’ve been diagnosed with liver cancer. Because of that, I will be getting a liver transplant and am in need of a donor. If you are interested in being tested to see if you’re a potential match, I’d be so grateful.”
