A local 57 year old man in the Northern KY area. In July of 2013 Robert (Bob) Besselman of Burlington KY had a fall in his backyard while cutting his grass which caused a T2 fracture, that he was being treated for until September 8th 2013 when he ended up at the Cincinnati OH VA ER room where he was diagnosed with stage 4 Renal Cell Carcinoma that has metastasized to his bones, lungs and spine which has caused him to be a paraplegic, from the chest down.
Bob had been with his new job less than 3 months and was a month away from being eligible for his health and life insurance benefits. He served in the US Army for 8 years and back in the National Guard later for 2 years more. Bob and his long time girlfriend Kathy, were married at the VA Hospital on September 27th 2013. Kathy is Bobs primary care giver and she has been forced to take a leave of absence from her job to care for him, and pull herself together because of this traumatic life change. Bob was admitted in the VA Hospital on September 8th and was released to return home on November 8th under the care of Hospice.
