    Bob Deyan lived a life in service of his dreams, his wife, friends, and family.   Bob and his wife Debra built their beloved audiobook company, Deyan Audio, from the ground up starting in 1990.  In 2013, they received an Audie Lifetime Achievement Award from the Audio Publisher's Association.  Bob's dreams not only took flight in his profession, but in the way his love and kindness touched everyone he met.  On August 19th, 2014, after a brief, yet beautiful lifetime of dreams come true, Bob passed away from ALS at 56 years old.

    Bob fought ALS with courage, dignity, and grace and was blessed to be surrounded by loved ones through every stage of his journey.  He was also supported by diligent nurses and family members working around the clock to keep him comfortable and ease his suffering.  Sadly, many ALS patients do not experience the same level of medical and moral support when coping with this illness.

    Ever hopeful, Bob had one unfulfilled dream before he passed.   Bob wanted his wife, Debra, and his head nurse, Koorosh Ilkhani, to start a fund so all ALS patients in need, can get the necessary medical support, regardless of their financial circumstances. 

    The Bob Deyan ALS Nurse Fund, governed by the ALS Association Golden West Chapter, will help pay for nurses, essential equipment, and resources for ALS patients who do not have the means to pay.  Bob's dream was to let people with ALS know they are not alone. 

    ALS affects more than nerve cells and muscles, it affects families, friends, co-workers, and communities.  Every ALS patient deserves to feel the level of medical and emotional support that Bob was fortunate to have in his final days.  

    With no known cause or cure, ALS challenges the human spirit and tests the courage of everyone touched by this devastating disease. 

    But by helping Debra and Koorosh continue Bob's legacy of love and generosity, we can create a Community of Hope that restores dreams and builds courage.  The Bob Deyan ALS Nurse Fund will give strength and hope to patients, loved ones, neighbors, and friends facing the fear and uncertainty of ALS.

    In deepest gratitude, 

    The Deyan Family and Deyan Audio Team
