Robert was diagnosed with NF1 when he was 10 years old.

“NF doesn’t stop me from what I want to do. It doesn't impact what I do in day to day. While it does affect my future joining the military, I hope to join the police department someday. Right now, I work at K-Bob’s Steakhouse.

“We learned of Sloan’s diagnoses in early December of 2015. It was right before his 5th birthday... I believe that we will always have to deal with NF.
