Support Bobby Martin

Bobby has worked in the moving industry for many years - most of you have met him or worked with him during this time. What many didn't know is that he has long suffered with heart disease.  Over the last year and a half, Bobby has been unable to work waiting for his heart transplant. Due to this, his hospital and doctors bills are through the roof.  If you are willing and able let's support our good friend and colleague-a valued member of the Moving Family.
