Sir Bobby Robson fought cancer an incredible five times. Sadly, 17 years after his first diagnosis, he lost that long and courageous battle on 31 July 2009. He died very peacefully at his County Durham home with his wife and family beside him.
During the last 18 months of his life, and after retiring from football management, Sir Bobby worked hard towards a new goal – fighting cancer through his charity.
The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation focuses on the early detection and treatment of cancer and the clinical trials of new drugs that will eventually beat it. Please do what you can to support the ongoing work of the Foundation by making a donation. All donors will receive a personalised certificate and letter of thanks.
