Roli Needs A New Home

I am sorry to say the Roli and I must part ways. Although I have survived ALS for over 13 years it is kicking my ass and it looks like I will be moving into a skilled nursing facility in the very near future and Roli isn't welcome nor do I think he would like a there. He is fully functional and I can leave him that way or I can have him disassembled and shipped as he was received new. I have used him through 3 battery charges and is practically brand new. I am asking $375 for him shipped to the lower 48 US. If you're elsewhere I will get a shipping cost for you. I hope he finds a loving home.

Barry,

I am so sorry to hear this. A dear friend of mine was just diagnosed with ALS but they think she has actually had it for 4 years but the symptoms were masked because she had a brain tumor removed many years ago but has had slurred speech, tremors and weakness as a result.

I signed the petition to the FDA for accelerated release of GM6. I hope it is approved early enough to give you both some relief.

Best of luck to you.

I'm so sorry that you have to give up your Roli. You've been a great asset to this community. It's amazing that you've been kicking ALS's butt for this long! All I can say is good luck and I hope you are able to continue with your hobbies in the way that's best for you, even if you can't have Roli around.

Geesh you guys ... you make a grown man cry! I'm definitely not giving up! I was 37 when I was diagnosed and the odds of me seeing a Revolution robot was 1% ... that's correct I had a 1% chance of ever owning a Roli. So thanks for all of the well wishes and we never know what tomorrow will bring. Roli might end up on ebay but I wanted to give you guys first crack at him. Thanks again!
@Nomad $90 US shipping but I would pay half just to save ebay fees.

Barry....Maybe you need to try and sneak Roli in inside your suitcase?.... He can live under the bed and warn you to switch channels when the staff come around....;)

I'll echo what everyone else said. And from one member of the Kiss Army to another, keep fighting and keep kicking ALS's ass (can I say that? I said it anyway :D)
