Welcome to the fundraising page of Robert H.

On December 16, 2010 our lives changed in the blink of an eye.  When you hear the words “your child has cancer” life as you know it changes.  Robert’s diagnosis had good statistics, odds are he’d beat this disease and live a full life.  The treatment however consisted of an archaic out dated regimen but we forged on in hopes of overcoming the beast that is Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. 

My gut told me from the start this would be rough.  But rough is an understatement.  Robert went through hundreds of rounds of chemotherapy, radiation, spinal taps, bone marrow biopsies, car-t therapies and anything else our doctor could think of to keep it at bay.  After four relapses however, we knew the outcome. We were out of options.  Our last stay in the hospital ended with an infection, an infection any other person could fight but his immunity had nothing left to give.  The infection spread to his brain and my sweet, sweet Robert the Great passed away at the age of 14 on April 26, 2019.   Robert had a smile that could light up a room and a laugh like no other. 

CURE was important to him and finding a cure was even more important.  He didn’t want any more kids to have to fight the way he did.  I promised him I’d continue to tell his story, to raise funds in hopes of finding a cure.  Please honor him and donate today.
