60-Year-Old Rob McLaren Swims Across America for Cancer Research | HOUSTON LIFE | KPRC 2

Robert McLaren first got involved with Swim Across America in San Francisco in 2009 as a way to honor many who have battled cancer and to do his part to “Make Cancer History.” After moving to Houston, he has raised more than $107,000 to support cancer research and clinical trials. Robert’s father was sadly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2005 at the age 80, but was successfully treated at MD Anderson Cancer Center. MD Anderson later treated his Dad for lymphoma and prostate cancer.
