I have known Kathy and Richard Whitman since 1970 when we were freshman at the University of Illinois. We have kept in touch throughout the years at both sad and joyous times in our lives. It was devastating for them both to lose Bob at such a young age to cancer. They took that sadness and created a charity for cancer research that celebrates Bob's life and helps many afflicted with the disease. I feel like I have gotten to know Bob myself through this yearly fundraising event replete with friends, family, food and great music. I think the character of the Bob Whitman Research Foundation reflects the character of Kathy and Richard. Words that come to mind are strength, commitment, caring, vision and love!
