Many people have asked how to support Robert and his family.  We are thankful for those that have donated to Caring Bridge as they provide a free service without advertisement.

Thank you again for all the prayers and words of encouragement.  I feel like we are living a nightmare that we aren't waking up from.

Here is the link to donate blood, and while it will not go specifically to him, the country is in a critical blood shortage.  Katie and I are signed up.  After seeing how much blood and platelets Rob has received I will be going back to my old habit of donating regularly.  I hope you will consider donating regularly as well.
