Welcome to Rob's CaringBridge site. Please check out the pictures (under resources you will find a link to the most current pictures), journal entries and links for information about Rob.

We read the guestbook entries to him regularly so feel free to leave him any words of encouragement you'd like to share.



On Monday, June 23, 2008, Rob was in a car accident that resulted in a traumatic brain injury. He was in a coma for five weeks at three different hospitals and came home after six months.

Rob suffered diffused axonal injury and is in a wheelchair. Currently, (2012) his torso is not strong enough to balance him and allow him to sit, or stand, without assistance. He is in therapies to help him be more independent.

Rob usually has two therapies each day. In addition to, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, swim therapy, myofascial therapy, and voice lessons, Rob bikes regularly in a special tandem that his dad, Dave, designed and built for him.

Dave is a mechanical engineer who works in the medical device industry. Amy, Rob's mom, and Becky, Rob's sister, are teachers at Union Middle School. Rob's brother, Rick, works for Blackhawk in the Bay Area.
