Robert (Bob) Benson, Founder of GBS/CIDP Foundation International

It is with deep regret the GBS/CIDP Foundation International announces that Robert (Bob) Benson, the inspiration for our Foundation, died on May 17th from cancer.

Bob, who had Guillain Barré Syndrome in 1979, founded the organization, along with his wife, Estelle.

At his family's request, contributions in his memory can be made to:
