In Memory of Bob Gibbs
The brain tumor community has lost a dedicated crusader with the passing of Bob Gibbs on December 10, 2011, after a seven-year battle. The staff and board of the National Brain Tumor Society would like to extend its sincere condolences to his wife, Barb, and his entire family and acknowledge all that he contributed to the fight against brain tumors.
After his diagnosis in 2004, Bob and Barb co-founded Miles For Hope near their home in Clearwater, Florida and in just a few short years made significant contributions to research and in supporting the community.
Beyond the organization’s success, Bob took pride in personally helping others who were stricken with the disease. He positively impacted many, many lives during his journey and will be deeply missed by everyone who knew him.
“I know from speaking with him that his mission beyond the organization was to bring as much hope, comfort, and support as he could to others,” said Chris Grundner, Director of Community Relations for the National Brain Tumor Society. “I truly hope that his family finds some comfort in knowing that the world is a better place having had Bob in it.”
