April 16, 2016 Update (Bob Dorr)

Here's an update.

As of mid-April, I continue to lose my ability to type on a keyboard. I can still talk. My speech is mostly intact and I encourage friends to call me at (703) 264-8950. I am suffering no discomfort and am in great spirits. I am enjoying the time connecting with friends and family, and most of all taking advantage of the occasional free lunch or milkshake.

In October, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor known as a Glioblastoma Multiforme.

This type of tumor is always fatal. Life expectancy generally runs from three to fifteen months.

I had brain surgery December 2 and completed radiation and chemo February 25. In April, I will be in my fourth round of chemo; one that requires taking pills for one full week each month.

Other than losing the ability to type on a keyboard, I've experienced no discomfort, pain, or side effects.

My most popular book is "AIR POWER ABANDONED," the story of the F-22 Raptor, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, General T. Michael Moseley, and Gates's firing of the Air Force leadership.

Price per book when ordered from me is $22. All proceeds are donated to the Capital Wing of the Commemorative Air Force, a 501(c )(3) charity. And, yes, it's on Kindle, too.

  1. Bob, I cannot imagine what you are going through right now, but you're facing it with grit, courage and determination. I wish you the best. Jeff Brown

  2. Bob, you sent me a signed copy of Mission to Berlin which I gave to my husband. He was very pleased with it. I wanted to let you know that my father went through several rounds of Temodar with very good success. Also, a very good friend of mine has been living with GBM and has also had very good luck with Temodar. I wish you good health on your journey.

    1. That's encouraging. Temodar seems to help here too. Hey, why not get him my latest book. From me, it's $22

  3. Praying for you every day Bob, you are truly amazing!! Love you buddy!! My stongest prayers and wishes for all good, Jeannette

  4. Check out the 60 minutes episode where they had a promising trial of polio injected into Glioblastoma. I had 2 friends with this type of cancer.
