Robin Capecci, Oncology Social Worker at St. Christopher’s Hospital, Philadelphia, PA


Robin studied undergrad at West Chester University and then went straight to University of Pittsburgh for her Masters. She is an extremely hard worker and has dedicated over 30 years of her life at the hospital. A social worker gets to meet all different kinds of people and help them but they also see bad things happen to good people. She is always thinking about others first and her daughter says, “I want her to get to enjoy life because she is always worrying about everyone else”. Robin and her husband, Joe, have been married for 28 years. Joe Capecci, suffers from Multiple Systems Atrophy and she is his primary caretaker. Their daughter, Allie, is 20 years old attending Penn State University.


Robin loves her family and friends, going to the beach, book club with her neighbors, throwing parties and taking walks. She is funny, relatable and can and will talk to everyone! She and her family wish for a cure or medicines to slow the progression of Multiple Systems Atrophy. “My mom is truly the most selfless and wonderful person I know,” says Allie.
