Extraordinary comeback by double cancer survivor

Giovanna Imbesi with boyfriend and cancer survivor Bob Garbutt following the Upper Township bay race STRATHMERE – Last December was a cold month for Bob Garbutt, and not just because the first of what was a long winter chill for all of us was settling into the region. It was during that time that he began the first of eight rounds of chemotherapy for an aggressive form of lymphoma, even more aggressive than the first bout of a related kind of cancer he beat about a decade ago.

Then in March, he underwent a stem cell transplant.

So to see Garbutt competing in the Upper Township Six-Mile Bay Row Monday evening behind the Deauville Inn, well, it was nothing short of extraordinary.

Garbutt, rowing with his girlfriend, Giovanna Imbesi, crossed the finish line in second place among mixed doubles crews and 27th overall out of 42 boats. They – and more specifically Garbutt – however, were the real winners of the race.
