Soap Actress Robyn Griggs Reveals Her Battle With Cancer

Actress Robyn Griggs made her daytime debut as Stephanie Hobart on ONE LIFE TO LIVE in 1991, but is probably best remembered for playing Maggie Cory on ANOTHER WORLD from 1993-95. Unfortunately, the daytime alum has been diagnosed with cervical cancer and reached out on Facebook to set up a fundraiser page to ask for help. “I have been diagnosed with stage four endocervical adeno,” she wrote. “My whole life has changed and I no longer can work.

“This is a horrible disease physically, but also mentally,” Griggs continued. “The stress of not knowing what tomorrow brings is bad enough, but add the medical bills that insurance won’t cover makes it worse. Any donation goes directly to the medical bills. Any help is appreciated. Thank you for being supportive. I am going to fight this, and please keep the prayers coming.”

Just a few days after launching her fundraiser page on Facebook, Griggs is nearly to her goal, but she admitted this morning that she knows it is just the beginning. “I slept fairly well last night,” she shared in an update. “Just very uncomfortable and it’s hard not knowing what to expect. It’s very odd. You feel like lightning bolts are going through you and the next you want to bake a pie. I’m just keeping my chin up and trying to stay positive. Thank you to everyone for your donations. I set this at a low goal but want to raise whatever possible I can. The bills are atrocious. I’m just going to take it moment by moment and keep smiling.”

If you would like to donate to Griggs’ medical fund, you can do so at the fundraiser page link above. Otherwise, as she mentioned, she would appreciate well wishes and prayers. Please join us in sending all the love to her so she can beat this terrible disease.
