Rob was diagnosed with Stage II Colon Cancer in May 2014 at the age of 32. After surgery it was determined that he has Lynch Syndrome, which led to his cancer. Like many others, following his diagnosis he turned to the internet and found The Colon Club. Urged by his wife, he applied for the ‘On The Rise’ magazine. Being a football coach and teacher, Rob was inspired to educate and coach people who have been impacted by this preventable cancer. He was featured in the 2017 ‘On The Rise’. He feels that this organization has given him a voice, a new extended family and has been very therapeutic for him at the same time. Rob is originally from Orlando, FL but currently resides in Dallas, TX with his wife, Jade, and two daughters Kennedy and Harlow.
