The family and friends of Bob Fraser are uniting to raise money to help Bob's family in a time of need.
As our fundraiser comes to an end on August 31, we wanted to thank each and every one of you for your comforting words and donations. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Thank you all so much.
To all of Bob's many friends; please feel free to join our family for a get together for my Bob, at Johnny Carson Park, in Burbank, Sunday the 24th of July from 1 to 2 or so. Bring a joke, a story, or a remembrance to share. The Frazier family would love to see you, and thank you. Bev.
Thank you so much for all of your generous donations - we greatly appreciate it. So far, $13,542 has been donated to help pay Bob's medical expenses. In order to put that much-needed money to use immediately, we had to close and reopen the fundraiser. Your donations are still very much needed and appreciated. Thank you.
It with the deepest sadness that we report that Bob passed away today. He passed at 9:00am this morning. He was with his family. He will be missed.
For the many of you who so generously donated money already, please know that your donations will be used to help pay the substantial medical bills Bob's family is left with. For those wishing to contribute now, your donations are still very much needed and appreciated.
The Frazier Family
Bob was first diagnosed with melanoma back in early March, 2011. It was first discovered as a small spot and was surgically removed. Doctors told Bob they’d gotten all of it and nothing further needed to be done. While recovering from the procedure, Bob noticed pain in his lower back. After running some tests, doctors discovered a tumor in Bob’s bladder. They removed it. On May 15th, Bob had such intense pain he went to the ER. Five days later he was told the melanoma had spread to his liver, lung and bone. Bob began radiation treatments and has gone through a total of ten. His first round of chemotherapy treatment was July 1st.
Bob is currently in intensive care and his team of doctors is working to get him to a level of physical strength where he can begin very promising immunotherapy treatments at The Angeles Clinic and Research Institute.
Bob’s multiple surgeries, hospitalizations, and cancer treatments have left Bob and his family with an overwhelming amount of medical bills. Your generous contributions, happy thoughts, prayers, and good vibes are greatly appreciated.
All money donated will go directly to pay Bob’s medical bills and will make possible Bob’s continued treatment, including his immunotherapy treatments at The Angeles Clinic and Research Institute.
