In October 2011, Bob suffered a post-operative cardiac arrest which led to hypoxic brain injury. For more details of his condition, see the robertbolton.org website.

A charity has been established by his wife Angela to help fund his long-term rehabilitation needs. You can help by making a donation here: www.sponsor.ie/charity/robertbolton/
