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.

JJ -Being able to work with You, And have you COME TO MY MASTER CLASS. To learn THE TRUE ART OF BODYBUILDING was INSPIRING, MOTIVATING AND Should be A CHALLENGE to all WHOM wish TO LEARN ……..RR .. Thanks Robby for teaching me the finer points of the art of bodybuilding. My wife and I both thank you for impressing upon me the need to get my eating habits changed for my health. As I said to you yesterday, I could not have had a better birthday present. Never in my wildest dreams did I think when I was 17 and saw you on the cover of Muscle Builder and Power in 1975 that I would one day be working out with you. Thanks again and all the best to you. Peace JJ

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…

 

He won Mr. World, Mr. America, and Mr. Universe while still suffering but he is a true story of never giving up. His statement about having a powerful mind is so true and he is a perfect example of perseverance and will power.

“THE POWER OF THE MIND- FROM THINKING TO ACTION. CALMING THE WILD MIND. DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK. THE MIND OF A MAN IS ITS OWN PLACE AND IN ITS SELF. CAN MAKE A HEAVEN OF HELL, A HELL OF HEAVEN”.

He needs financial support to get through these hard times and fortunately, he has raised $11,000+ dollars of the $7,000 goal. He has a GoFundMe set up for donations and anything will help with his ongoing condition.
