Bob Frier’s Wife Breast Cancer

In 2015, Bob’s wife Karen received a breast cancer diagnosis from her doctor. On his Facebook page for Fox 35, Bob stated the following: “I have something important to discuss with each and every one of you… something that I have been hesitant to tell you about, primarily due to the fact that it is both personal and impacts the woman whom I love more than anybody else in the world. My wife, Karen, was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier on in the summer of this year. Obviously, it came as a surprise; but, she handled the situation with a lot of bravery, and together we have attempted to get ready for what’s to come.

We have been gradually disseminating the information to those who have to need to be aware of it, and now Karen has asked me to disseminate it to all of you. She knows that I will be noticeably missing as I assist her in navigating some challenging days in the near future.

Her operation is scheduled for Tuesday, and the doctors have assured us that they are confident they will remove all of the cancer and that she has an outstanding prognosis. Please remember to keep Karen in your thoughts and prayers, and be assured that I will be returning as soon as her recuperation allows it. We are really lucky to have family and friends who are helping us get through this.”
