Professor RJ Ross

Nine years ago Professor RJ Ross was given only months to live. After a lifetime of making music, Ross had assembled his own band, The University of Soul, and set out to record his album. However, just as recording was about to begin, Ross was diagnosed with a rare form of Stage-IV cancer and was thrust into what he calls “a roller-coaster ride of heartbreaking joy and dark despair.” Told his cancer was incurable and to “get his affairs in order,” the Professor refused to accept his fate and set out on a five-year quest to prove the doctors wrong. Thus began a courageous five-year battle that defied all odds when redemption came in the form of an extremely risky and invasive surgery--the success of which gave him a new lease on life.
