Bob & Leah's Mission


Over the past 30 years, Bob Faught has worked with many patients who needed the education & motivation to make the best "Joint Decisions" for themselves & everyone around them. As an experienced patient with both passion & compassion, it has been Bob's mission & goal to share the patient's perspective as a Patient Advocate. This is why Bob & Leah founded Our Joint Decisions, Inc. NFP.

These three personal stories Bob has shared are a few of many that he has experienced with the many patients he has personally helped to achieve pain-free mobility & a higher quality of life. Our Joint Decisions now gives Bob & Leah the ability to provide this education & psychological & inspirational motivation to all patients. It's a mission of providing hope & healing to those many patients who have fear keeping them from making the best "Joint Decision" for themselves & everyone around them.

Bob's Biggest Challenges

Bob's biggest challenges in helping other patients turned out to be both of his parents. Ironically, Bob had both knees totally replaced before his father & mother had theirs.

In 2004, Bob & Leah helped his father through his total knee replacement. What Bob saw was the result when a patient does not follow through on their rehabilitation. Bob thought his father would follow-through. His father never fully recovered to full mobility & is now in a nursing home where he cannot walk at all.

As mentioned in this web site earlier, Bob's mother had her total right knee replacement in September 2010. This time Bob & Leah focused his mother on the importance of rehabilitation. She was walking without support six days after her surgery, and was fully mobile & driving in less than three weeks.

Yes, it is unique for a child to provide first-hand support for joint replacement. It was a great challenge with both parents, and two completely diverse results based on commitment, attitude & follow-through. It simply validated Our Joint Decisions, Inc NFP, the CORE ROADS TO LIFE & the importance of psychological & inspirational motivation.
