Translation: There are worries.

The 33-year-old mother of two – Dezmin, 12, and J.J., 6 – also known as “Tita” has been battling with osteosarcoma bone cancer for the past six years.

“She’s currently undergoing a new treatment plan that is very expensive and not covered by medical insurance,” said her friend, Eunice Steves.

Steves and others will be hosting a benefit yard sale this weekend, with all proceeds helping the Manteca High alumnae foot the cost her lofty medical expenses for treatment of the cancerous one tumor.

The “Help Save a Life” yard sale and recycling drive is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday through Sunday, at the home of Steves and Kayla Roche, 20650 Tinnin Road, Manteca.

According to Steves, a drawing for prizes will be held at the end of the day for the yard sale.

“We’ll take in glass and plastic bottles and aluminum cans. We’ll have a donation jar available at the yard sale,” she said.

Friends and supporters of Robinson will also accept donated items for the yard sale along with donation of food and time.

In addition, those interested in making a monetary donation to help Robinson can do so by going to any Wells Fargo Bank branches (routing # 121000248).
