Before the recession, Keith Robbins was well off with a small construction business, a family of four and a three-story home. After the housing market crashed, Robbins lost his business and was soon diagnosed with tongue and throat cancer. “I took for granted that I was going to be successful for the rest of my life,” Robbins said. After the financial pressures destroyed his marriage and left him homeless, Robbins met Sheryl Brown, who became his partner and caregiver. “She has been by my side 24 hours a day, seven days a week since this started. She is an angel.” Robbins said. Photo taken April 16, 2010.
