Robby Thatcher was an athlete, a poet, a surfer
and a musician. He grew up in Fairhaven, Massachusetts and attended Fairhaven public schools until his junior year.

Robby was diagnosed with leukemia. He underwent chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant and enjoyed 13 months of remission before the leukemia came back..Robby relapsed. His second series of treatments were too much for his body to handle. Robby lost his battle with cancer on November 28, 2003.

His wonderful personality and amazing strength taught us what bravery truly is. In Robby's memory we reach out to families going through similar situations. We offer both financial and emotional support to these families. Our wish is to help. We give scholarships out to seniors at Fairhaven and New Bedford High school yearly.
