Shak Hill is a decorated Air Force combat pilot who served in Desert Storm/Desert Shield and has been a community leader all his life. He and his wife Robin have an inspirational life changing story to tell as he mounts his senate campaign against career politician Mark Warner in Virginia.
A strong Constitutionalist, Hill believes in American exceptionalism and has heeded the call to enter politics because of his heartfelt belief that America is going down a dangerous path. From the Shak Hill for U.S. Senate website, Shak writes: “My wife and I have built a comfortable life. I am not about politics as usual. I am not part of the ruling class, but I am fearful that our country is heading in the wrong direction. I will be beholden to you, the Constitution and our Creator.”
Twenty years ago, when Robin Hill was pregnant with their second child, it was discovered that she had an aggressive form of stage 4 bone cancer, and was given a death sentence by her physicians. They advised her to abort the child and begin cancer treatments immediately - to try to save her life, even though the prospects for her survival were grim. She was given a 10 percent chance.
Robin decided to do whatever it took to save her baby - even if it meant giving up her own life for the life of her child, Jake. Please watch their inspirational story HERE.
Thankfully, Robin beat back the cancer, after the removal of a volleyball sized tumor, chemotherapy and lots of prayer and support from her husband and loved ones.
The cancer surgery rendered Robin unable to bear more children, so the Hill's decided to become foster parents in 1999. Since then, they have fostered 46 children in their home.
In his opening volley for Hill's senate campaign, he is rightfully reminding Virginia voters that Mark Warner voted for the disastrous lie that is now known as Obamacare.
From the Shak Hill for US Senate Website: On August 10, 2009 Senator Warner promised he would not support a healthcare bill that would take away your medical insurance. Even after knowing ObamaCare (MarkWarnerCare) was a disaster, Warner allowed the government to shutdown over his failed promise.
(There is no better way to draw a stark comparison between Pro-Life and Death Panels than to oppose Obamacare.)
Hill grew up in Louisiana, and when his family was no longer able to afford his private education, he took on odd jobs to be able to continue his education. After his Air Force career, Hill attended college and became a small business owner in Virginia. He has been recognized for his tireless volunteerism in his community.
Shak and Robin Hill are also proud homeschoolers.
