I met Robert when we were in middle school, and we were like brothers from the beginning. As he became an amazing artist, teacher and father our friendship continued to grow.

Watching a person who changed the world with his work in education be broken down physically and mentally by this terrible disease was enough for me to realize that I needed to get more involved in helping to find a cure. I joined up with the Brigance Brigade in hopes of not only helping to find that cure, but also helping people currently fighting their battle with the disease, so that we can put a stop to the people we love being taken from us by this crippling disease.” – Jack B
