Rob is the spouse of a stroke survivor and he epitomizes
the concept of creating a positive outcome from what could be perceived as a
negative situation. He helped to spearhead the formation of a stroke survivor's
support group and a caregiver's peer support network in his
local community. Rob is the individual quietly in the background making good
things happen for others through his donation of time, creative talent, caring
and, at times, financial support. A financial donation from he and his wife
enabled a stroke survivor and her mom to attend a local stroke camp. His gifts
of handcrafted wood items delight and touch the hearts of many
volunteers and presenters at the support group. Rob is constantly attuned to the needs of the others
and provides just what they need to make their day. He is a shining example of
the power of one person to make a difference.
