The friends and family of Rob need your help to pay Rob's mortgage for one year while he battles Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Rob was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma for the first time in 1998. After 12 years of remission, he was diagnosed again in September 2010. He was greatly supported by friends and family when he lost his job as a result. Managing to put the disease into remission was a huge accomplishment for him 6 months later.
Then, in August 2011, Rob discovered the disease
relapsed. Despite the consequences, he attempted to continue working for several months, as he had just regained his employment.
In March 2012, Rob found out the previous cancer treatments caused Avascular Necrosis in both of his hips. He had surgery on one of them immediately, and is still waiting on the other.
In May 2012, a PET Scan showed sudden acceleration of the lymphoma, causing Rob's oncologist to insist on starting chemotherapy immediately. When remission is once again achieved, Rob will receive a stem cell transplant. This means he will be out of work for more than six months, greatly surpassing the time allowed for leave, and will find himself without a job once more.
Without income, Rob will surely lose his home, causing an unnecessary and preventable stress for him.
Rob is a kind, caring, wonderful man. Please help show him there are people in the world with hearts as big as his.
