Happy Birthday To Our Esteemed NFXF Executive Director Robby Miller!


  • Happy birthday, Robby! I love seeing work with everyone in the FX community. A shining example of how to be in the nonprofit world.

  • Really? 60? Holy cow, never would have guessed you were right behind John and Stephanie. You must have robbed (no pun intended) the cradle when you married Julie. Have a great birthday!


  • Happy Birthday! Have a great day!

  • Happy Birthday Robby!! Thanks for all you do. Have a wonderful day!!

  • Happy birthday Robby. I am ready for another visit to India!

  • Robby! Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day and year. Do you know when the birthday ends in zero, you get to celebrate all year! That’s the rule. It was such a pleasure working with you on the education project a few years back. You have done so much for the foundation over the years. My son Jessie and all the girls, boys, and adults in the fragile X community are so lucky to have you in their lives!
    Warmest regards,

  • Mike, Lisa and Madison Austin

  • Happy B’day Robby!

    Have a wonderful day.

  • Happy Birthday Robbie. Thank you for ALL you do!

  • 60? How the heck did that happen? Oh, I guess since Grant (diagnoseda at age 3) is now 17…that makes sense. But wait! That means that I’m….nevermind.
    Happy Birthday. Thank you for all you do for our kiddo’s. Grant has taught us all more about life, love and acceptance than anyone. He is pure joy. Thank you for all of your hard work to help our kids.
    All the best from Boise……

  • Have a nice day!!!!

  • Happy Birthday from Malta

  • Happy birthsday, Robby! It ahs been a real pleasure knowing you and working together. I do look forward to continue our collaboration.

  • Happy (belated) birthday Robby. Gosh, only 60 years old? It sure seems like you’ve been working at the foundation for 60 years. Whatever the number, we thank you for your years of contribution to the fragile X community.

  • Hi Rob – Have a lovely birthday! I know it’s been sometime and you might not remember (understandably!), but I’d like to thank you ever so much for all your help concerning my younger sister, for whom we were looking for assisted living. She’s now back in Bermuda living with our mum, but she does come to see us here in the UK once or twice a year. Our three kids (with FX) are make great progress in their special schools and with the help of all the great conferences we have gone to over the years, held by the UK Fragile X Society.
    I have to tell you, I still have the first newsletter we received from the Foundation, in which you had your article on Doug who went scuba diving. In it you responded to complaints from parents who didn’t want you writing the articles anymore as their kids weren’t doing all these things, etc. I still remember what you said to them, how their children were people, not the diagnosis and as such will have strengths and weaknesses. Over the years I I still remind myself of this from time to time, especially when I have a low point, and have passed it on to others, in the hope that it will be of help to them. Thanks again for all your hard work, and many happy returns!
    All the best

  • Happy Birthday from the Roberts family. Thank you for all you do!

  • I am not sure how old my now 15 yr old son was when we were guided to the NFXF site. Through the many conferences I have attended and information I have gathered and shared I feel empowered and informed, better able to advocate for him and share with others what I know. You have so much to do with taking us out of the darkness of fear and into light of hope and knowledge. I celebrate you and want you to know, even though you do not know me, what you do has helped me and my family so very much. As it is almost St Pat’s Day I must say, “May God continue to Bless you and hold you safe in the palm of his hand.” Best Wishes on your birthday and always. Clare Dalton and family. Winchester, Ma.

    Happy Birthday to a wonderful man. You were so compassionate when I called after getting our diagnosis. You listened to me blubber and cry for about 45 minutes, all the while being extremely calm and supportive. You were the turning point in embracing FXS. Thank you so much for everything you do!

  • 60 is a wonderful age!

  • Happy Birthday Robby! Just look at your 60th as turning 20… for the third time! Perhaps your youthfulness is from working with all us families affected by Fragile X! Thank you SO much for your endless dedication and support. May God bless you with a continued passion for your work while enjoying many more years of good health, hope, and happiness!
