Bob’s Story

Dear loving friends and family. I am sure by now the rumors have taken their natural course.I wanted to share that I have had a set back and I have been in the hospital the last few days and thinking of you!My family is here with me and we are starting to process the information that has been provided. I want you all to know that I am in good hands and having the support network that I do is making this easier. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. Lovingly, Bob

I have been diagnosed with Interstitial Lung Disease, essentially fibrosis of the lungs. And, FYI, I've never worked in a coal mine, smoked, or driven a tractor. I'm in a private room at Renown Medical Center receiving extraordinary care by a network of doctors who are my friends, highly respected in their field; some whom I met while chairing the Renown Foundation Board years ago.We're taking this day by day and will keep you updated.
