@electriczipper What a cruel thing to say. Ever hear the phrase "if you have nothing good to say, dont say anything" Feel sorrier for you than for Robi, Im sure he will come out of this better than you. Have a wonderful and HEALTHY life.

Just sayin!    

Everyone should just IGNORE the IGNORANT comments that electriczipper is allowing to come out of his mouth he just wants attention, poor pathetic soul! If he knew anything about God he would not make such a ridiculous statement! Get a life MORON and while your at it get educated! NO MORE ATTENTION FOR YOU!

Praying for Robi and wishing him well! ;)

I hope he is at M.D. Anderson in Houston, and not Burzynski's cancer quackery clinic.
