In November of 2017 Robert was diagnosed with a very rare AML Leukemia Extramedullary cancer after the removal of a mass in his small intestine. In late December Robert began a very aggressive chemotherapy treatment at the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia which resulted in him being hospitalized for 30 days due to neutropenic reactions . A campaign to immediately find a Bone Marrow Donor was launched and a successful match was finally found in late May of 2018. Currently Rob is in a good healthy state and beginning preconditioning stages for his transplant consisting of rounds of chemotherapy and a low dose full body radiation. He will be expected to remain in hospital for @ 30 days during this stages and another 30 days in recovery at a nearby medical lodge due to Immuno Suppression conditions.
