In January of 2015, Greg Robertson decided to lose 15 pounds. He had worked out regularly for several years and took no medications. After about 3 months he reached his goal weight, but to his surprise, he could not stop losing weight. His annual check-up indicated that he needed to see a hematologist. He was soon diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma in September of 2015.
After several rounds of intense chemotherapy and an autologous stem cell transplant in May of 2016, his lymphoma is in remission. Last year, his brother and sister-in-law
participated in San Francisco’s Light the Night Walk in his honor. He and his family are
so grateful that this year, he can join the walkers in Tampa to increase awareness about blood cancers and help raise money to find a cure for them. His positive outlook and spirit are a constant source of encouragement to all who he encounters.
Greg is the Operations Director for Van Dyke Church in Lutz, Florida. He has been active in the community for many years through the Boy Scouts, various school PTA’s
and through his church. He has been married to his college sweetheart for 35 years and they have 2 children, a son-in-law and 2 precious grandsons.
