“My hope is that my condition finds cures so that other people don’t have to go through it and their kids don’t have to see their parents and their dad go through this type of a condition”
– Rob

Your ultimate wish as a parent is to always be there to protect your children. Read Rob’s story and see how he has dealt with acromegaly, a pituitary tumor that secretes growth hormone and can cause facial abnormalities, overgrowth of the heart,and arthritis due to abnormally growing joints among other things.
