Bob Mosolf was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 2009. He began the first of several rounds of chemotherapy in February 2010 and went into remission in August of that year. Two years later, Bob’s cancer returned and he underwent more radiation. In 2013, doctors performed an outpatient auto stem cell transplant on Bob. Unfortunately, the transplant was not as successful as his doctors had hoped. Bob has gone through multiple chemotherapy treatments since then and has been hospitalized several times with related infections and pneumonia. He also had an electronic spine simulator implanted in his back to help with peripheral neuropathy triggered by the high doses of chemotherapy in his initial year of treatment.
Despite Bob’s on-going health challenges with Multiple Myeloma, he maintains a positive attitude and finds the time and energy to volunteer at Riverside Hospital. Bob lives in Newport News, Virginia. He enjoys cruise trips and traveling with his wife, Celia, and two children, Laura and Jacob. Bob is inspired by people who go the extra mile to help others.
