Bob Frier Wife Breast Cancer
In 2015 Bob’s wife, Karen, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Bob wrote on his Fox 35 Facebook page: “I need to share something with all of you… something I’ve been reticent to tell you about, mainly because it’s personal and affects the woman I love more than anyone in the world. Earlier this summer my wife, Karen, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Of course it came as a shock, but she’s been very brave about it and together we’ve tried to prepare for what’s coming. We’ve been slowly sharing the news with people who need to know and now Karen has asked me to share it with all of you because I’ll be conspicuously absent while I help her through some difficult days ahead. Her surgery is Tuesday, and the doctors have told us they’re confident they’ll get all the cancer out and that her prognosis is excellent. We’re very fortunate to have family and friends to help us through this, but please keep Karen in your thoughts and prayers, and know that I’ll be back when her recovery allows.”
