Tiger fans can assist the DesOrmeaux family through a donation fund that has been established at Bank One.
A goal keeper who is a native of Carencro, Robyn started 50 of LSU's 58 games in her career, and ranks second in LSU history in saves and shutouts. In 2003 she was named the team's defensive MVP and was selected to the All-Louisiana Soccer Team.
Robyn, who will turn 23 years old on January 17, is currently undergoing chemotherapy at M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston, and will later need surgery to remove the cancerous tumor.
She is the daughter of Steve and Connie DesOrmeaux of Carencro.
"Robyn is using her mental toughness, her strong competitive spirit and her tenaciousness in her effort to win this battle with cancer," said LSU athletics director Skip Bertman.
To help offset the extraordinary expense associated with her treatment, LSU has established a donation fund at all Louisiana Bank One locations. Tiger fans who want to make a financial donation to help in her fight against cancer can make their checks payable to the Robyn DesOrmeaux Donation Trust and visit any Bank One to make a donation.
For more information and to send Robyn an encouraging message, fans can visit her website at www2.caringbridge.org/la/robyn.
