The Rob George Foundation was founded in loving memory of Rob George, who died aged 21 on 9th December 2013 following a long battle with leukaemia.
The Rob George Foundation has been set up to:
1) provide practical and/or financial support to young people with life threatening or terminal illnesses
2) provide financial support to young people who demonstrate exceptional commitment and/or ability in the worlds of sport or the performing arts but may be held back by their financial situation from pursuing their goals
Rob George was a talented sportsman. He excelled at golf, hockey and cricket. At the time of his last illness he had just broken into the Colchester & East Essex 1st XI and had been elected a full playing member of the MCC.
But Rob’s sporting achievements – and his life – was cruelly cut short by acute myeloid leukaemia. Diagnosed in June 2011 and treated at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, Rob achieved full remission but two years after his initial diagnosis the leukaemia returned. Further chemotherapy followed and a stem cell transplant was planned but Rob died in December 2013.
Rob was brave and dignified, caring not for himself but for his family and friends. His wish was that a Foundation be set up in his memory to support young people who faced similar intolerable financial difficulties to those he had encountered. Rob also wanted the Foundation to provide financial support to those in the worlds of sport or the performing arts.
