My Story

In 2000, my 3 year old son, Robert Stephen Gilmore, was diagnosed with brain cancer. I researched and fought to decrease the effects treatment had on him. Twelve years later, he was diagnosed with a 2nd cancer, colon cancer, which is rare in children. He completed chemo cycles January 7, 2013. In May 2015, The colon cancer returned. He continued chemo through January 2016. He passed on Valentine's Day 2016. He loved sports, especially Clevelad Cavaliers, Carolina Panthers, ECU and UNC. LeBron James and Cam Newton are his favorites. His ONE desire was to play football. He finally suited up Senior Night October 31, 2015.
