Bob was integral to our grants program from its inception in 2005 onward. As the Division Chief, Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, Hematology/Oncology and Director of the Ron Matricaria Institute of Molecular Medicine At Phoenix Children’s Hospital, he made countless contributions to help children with cancer and transform the pediatric cancer landscape. We will always remember Bob's brilliance, compassion and authority, his great laugh and his incomparable sense of humor. He is greatly missed.
