Robert Grau Family Support Fund

Late summer of 2017, our family went on vacation. That year, like the last, we went to Greenbush, MI, just past Tawas. Within a day, an hour, a minute, we knew something was wrong with Robert. He was in pain, he couldn't eat, he tried to sleep, and his coloring was all wrong. Alyssa and Robert quickly left for the nearest hospital. It was there that the doctors immediately confirmed that Robert had cancer and needed to get home to a hospital more equipped to deal with this illness as soon as possible.

Rob was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer that has now spread to other organs in his body. He has been battling a 21+ month long routine of chemo, radiation, weight loss, fatigue, nausea, and pain - pain that no one should ever have to endure.

As many of you may know, he is the General Manager at the Best Buy in Utica, MI. With his career at Best Buy, He has created moments that are unforgettable with his passion for his team, his love to help others be their best, and the way he would be able to give a speech that would bring you to tears. Everyone can easily say he is the most selfless, genuine man you will ever meet. He is a leader that continues to inspire professionally and personally. He has been there for many in times of need and the first person felt they could go to for powerful words of wisdom.

He has not let cancer define him. Even through this fight he has been there when advice was needed. Cancer has now forced Rob to slow down. He has been home with his wife of nearly 6 years, Alyssa, their 4 year old son Hudson, and step-children Benjamin and Addison.  

Rob has been there for us and many have asked how can they help. So we have created this GoFundMe page to help the Grau family attend to medical expenses that need to be addressed in a time when no one should be burdened with monetary concerns.  

Thank you for all the continuous messages, love, and support to everyone that has reached out.38553360_1555458887111276_r.jpeg38553360_1555459111436853_r.jpeg38553360_1555459398792801_r.jpeg38553360_1555459448994063_r.jpeg38553360_1555459468367546_r.jpeg38553360_1555459635851589_r.jpegLatest updates for Robert
