The family, friends and community who loves Robert are uniting together to raise funds for his pancreas injury. Please show your support!

On May 25, 2012, Robert was out playing the second soccer game of the season with his daughter Lexi. In the middle of a play, he collided with the goalie and hit the ground. He was able to get up after a few minutes and was walked off the field with the help of his teammates. He was sore, but seemed okay.

The following morning Robert was in excruciating pain but decided to wait it out since he no longer had insurance. Finally, by 9:30 pm, he was convinced he needed to go to the hospital despite the cost, and so his roommate took him and his daughter Lexi met him there. After an evaluation from the doctor, it was determined that he had torn his pancreas and it was leaking fluid into his intestines, so surgery was necessary to repair the tear.

The following morning, Friday, May 25, Robert went in to surgery at 7:00 am. The surgery was successful, but the recovery requires a week-long hospital stay that is not covered by insurance, and a 6 week recovery that will limit his activity tremendously.

Lack of insurance and inability to work will create a huge financial weight on Robert, who has two children to support. In hopes of helping ease the burden on Robert so he can focus on getting healthy in the next few weeks, we are pulling together to raise a little money to support those needs.

Robert has a huge heart and is always doing whatever he can to help everyone else, and if the situation were reversed with any one of us he would do the same for each of us. Please join us in pulling our community of people who know and love Robert together.
