Robert Crayhon

When I first started practicing nutrition, Robert Crayhon was definitely a name to know. He founded a well known supplement company and he hosted THE best seminars called Boulderfest. This annual festival would bring together Doctors, Naturopaths, Acupuncturists, Chiropractors....all practitioners in the same room discussing the new breakthroughs in medicine and nutraceuticals from across the world, not just in the US. He is a pioneer in the nutrition world. I was fortunate to know him those early years and have him answer my many questions but as anyone who knew him could tell you...getting him to sit still was a rare thing. It was very sad to get this email today. My thoughts are with you Robert.

For those of you who have not heard, Robert Crayhon was recently diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer. After surgery to remove as much of the mass as possible he is out of the hospital and receiving IPT treatment to slow the growth of the cancer.

He has a good support team with lots of experience in colorectal cancer but a major complication is derailing his ability to get the best treatment. Robert sold Crayhon Research last year and was counting on income from that sale to propel his next venture in nutrition and to fund his upcoming conferences, and would have used the income to stage his battle with cancer. However, the purchaser of Crayhon Research recently filed bankruptcy leaving Robert without any income. Robert has also exhausted his savings on his current medical expenses.

To help Robert a donation site has been established here: Robert Crayhon Cancer Battle Donations
Please donate whatever you can to help our friend and a great mentor in the field of nutrition. He is entirely dependant upon his friends and colleagues to help him finance his war on cancer and his cachexia.

There is also a website where you can offer moral support to Robert here:

And Robert has a blog site dedicated to talking about his experience with cancer:

Thank you.
