Resides in Canmore, AB | CCTG Patient Representative since 2015
Bob supported both his father and mother during the later stages of their cancer journey, and supported his wife through four major breast cancer events over a period of 15 years. After her eventual death from metastasized breast cancer in 2014, he was instrumental in the publishing of her book “Between the Stars and the Stones”, an adaptation of her thesis in which she relates how walking the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela (Spain) and the pilgrimage with breast cancer inform each other.
Bob's own career as an executive in the energy sector was followed by a stint as Assistant Deputy Minister in the Alberta government and a leading not-for-profit that seeks to engage a broad spectrum of individuals in fact based conversations about future energy options. In addition to supporting the CCTG Breast Cancer Committee he remains an avid international traveler seeking to include hiking and multi-day cycling as part of the itinerary.
