“Hi everyone, With a heavy heart, I am saddened to announce Robyn’s passing,” the statement began. “However, she is no longer suffering and would want us to remember that and the good memories.”
The statement continued: “I will never forget how open she was to telling her story, and accepting of me helping her tell it. She wanted to help people and spread the word of her story to do it. I was honored to do so. RIP my friend, I love you and smile when I think of you.”
Griggs had opened up on social media about her cervical cancer diagnosis. A GoFundMe page shared on her Facebook page said she went to the hospital for a pap smear and learned that she had stage 4 endocervical adenocarcinoma in 2020.
“She has fought with determination, strength, and grace that is nothing short of inspirational,” the post said. “Please continue keep Robyn and her family in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.”
