A message from the founder of RobsARTTT
Rob Holland

robJust before my 15th birthday (Mother’s Day), I was taken into hospital. Previously, I had been back and forth to hospital and been diagnosed with different problems, food poisoning, gastroenteritis, a hernia and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

On my last visit, the doctor noticed that my prostate gland was swollen and I was finally admitted for further investigation. After a number of blood tests and scans, they noticed several tumours in my abdomen. I was transferred to The John Radcliffe Children’s Hospital in Oxford, where the Consultants confirmed I had the rare cancer, (DSRCT).

I had 5 courses of chemo, which made me feel really sick, and I lost 3 stone in weight. I was fed with a feeding tube straight into my abdomen, to help maintain my weight. All this was to no avail, as the chemo had little or no affect on the tumours, that were later to take my life.

My aim is to raise awareness of this rare Cancer and to fund research into the disease. I hope to help save lives or at least give others a longer and better quality of life. I also hope to ensure that other teenagers know about this rare and very agressive disease.   Rob 9/5/92 – 4/9/07
