Chances are, if you have found this page, you know the amazing, kind and generous Bobby Troup. You may have seen Bobby walking around Boulder with his pack of border collies at his side, visited him in the Airstream he once called home, grown up with him in New Canaan, enjoyed a camping trip with him, got his help on your landscape, enjoyed his photography and videography or had an interesting conversation with him in passing. His warm smile and charisma always make people feel at home.
After feeling not quite right for the last few months, Bobby underwent a battery of tests. Just over a week ago, a biopsy revealed that Bobby has stage 3 colon cancer. He has a 7cm tumor located at the junction of the cecum. Based on the test results, the doctors think the cancer has likely spread into his lymph nodes. Bobby is scheduled for surgery on Tuesday, May 2 at Boulder Community Hospital at 2pm mountain time.
What we know is that Bobby won't be able to work for some period of time and needs to move from his idyllic, but remote cabin outside of Boulder to a place more suitable to having caregivers and helpers as he recovers his strength and his health.
Without cash reserves, Bobby's options are quite limited. To help alleviate the financial stress that Bobby is facing, we are asking for your generosity to help cover Bobby's basic living and medical expenses while he is healing.
After the surgery we will know more about what is to come. He may need further treatment.
Bobby has 4 dogs which are his family and will also need to go for walks and have some play time. They are sweet dogs and are very well behaved should anyone know of a home rental in the boulder area.
No amount is too little or too much to help our friend through this challenging time. let us all help together!!
