|The R.J.L.F was formed in 1983 and is now run by three trustees. Namely, Bob Johns M.B.E (Roberts Father), Hazel Cartwright and Roy Cobbledick, in memory of Robert, son of Bob, who fought the disease for five long years but unfortunately lost the battle at age 11.|
His treatment centres were the Leukaemia, Cancer, Ward 5 at Freedom Fields Hospital in Plymouth Devon for children, (This has now been moved to Plymouth's main hospital, "Derriford"), and the 'Royal Marsden Hospital' in Sutton, Surrey. The money raised by the fund is divided between these two centres every year. Few expenses are incurred, as they are mainly absorbed by the trustees.
