The friends and family of Bobby Hunter are uniting together to help with his fight against skin cancer.

Most people, when in need or hurting, tend to isolate themselves, as not to be a burden or bother to anyone. That is exactly what NOT to do. While we understand alone time is necessary to gain perspective, it is my experience that through our interactions, we gain our strength.

World Straight Pool Champion and cue builder extraordinaire, Bobby Hunter, has been an intergral part of strengthening our pool world.
Bobby has played amazing pool for 35 years, and he is the last American to hold the title "World Straight Pool Champion." He has sat on the boards of player organisations and mentored many players. (Most notably, John Schmidt.) Bobby's life as cue builder started to bloom after being mentored by Chicagoan, Joey Gold of Cognoscenti Cues. Bobby moved to Chicago 3 years ago to continue building cues here in the heart of the midwest.
He has been an inspiration and driving force for 14.1 and pool as a whole, most of his life.

And it is with heavy heart that I share this; Bobby has developed cancerous cells on his lower right eyelid and requires surgery, scheduled for January.
While this is not terminal-no one would want the loss of sight.
I know we have the means to help Bobby together- so let's appreciate this Champion and reach our goal!!!

Thank you,
Angel Levine
