Hi all,

It is with much sadness that we write to inform you that Rob Fincher died yesterday. He was at home with his beautiful and incredibly strong wife Annie.  

Rob was a member of our online community and a champion for BCNA.  We recently put a video of Rob’s story on our Facebook page and more than 8,000 people have already viewed it.  Rob wanted to use his voice to help others and he certainly has done that. He is a legend!

We have put a Vale on the website https://www.bcna.org.au/news/2019/06/vale-rob-fincher/

The sad reality of breast cancer hits us all too often but how lucky we are to have had so many people leave a lasting legacy in our lives.  Please look after yourselves.

 

All the team at BCNA

    So sorry to hear this & our condolences to Rob's wife Annie, his family & friends, particularly @traveltext

    TIme for that 'empathy button', I reckon .... the 'like' button doesn't really 'cut it'  :(   

    I am sure more people would respond with it on a lot of posts, including this one.

    Sad to read!
    Such a touching tribute! 
    Hopefully his family and friends will, in time, take comfort in knowing he was able to advocate and remind all that Breast Cancer can affect males.

    It is indeed a crappy disease and there’s still no cure, unfortunately. 

    Rob died with great great dignity and a week ago agreed to let me record these poignant words:
