“My brother has been diagnosed with cancer and I can’t begin to share how devastating this has been for Rob and our family.

He is an incredible person, husband, father, brother and son and he remains upbeat and determined to fight this.

Rob has always been so strong for all of us and now I ask us to be strong for him.

Your kind words and well-wishes mean everything to him right now.

Rob will beat this.
