The enthusiasts behind Cancer Research Racquet

Rob Kinas Cancer Research Racquet Founder

Robert Kinas

According to Rob’s doubles partners, Rob is old and bald but delivers the “W” on the court. According to Rob’s often-befuddled doubles opponents, Rob is lightning-quick, has ultra-touch volleys at the net and hits mathematically-impossible angles on returns of serve.

Rob is a multi-decade blood cancer survivor (Mantle Cell Lymphoma/2005) and celebrates every day of remission (1) raising money to advance cancer research and (2) making memories with family and friends in the US, UK and EU.  Rob has been a lawyer since 1987 and specializes in crushing fraudsters, complex loan restructurings and commercial bankruptcies.
