Everyone's support has been awesome.

There are always other things to focus on, especially things that we can control but I know it is out of my hands now and I'm glad everyone was along for the ride. I don't really find the time to pop on as much as I use to but life has really been catching up with me.

I follow my facebook and the franksfight page so I don't really miss anything.

Frank, you got this! I can't begin to imagine or pretend to understand what you're going through. I just want you to know us random Internet peeps (myself included, even though I think of yourself and Wendy as real life friends) are behind you, willing to do whatever we can.


#FranksFight. I'm here buddy, anything I can do for you and your family, please just let me know. Stay strong Dace!!! Phone Post

Always rooting for you and always sending good juu juu your way. Your a inspiration and a shinning example of what a true warrior is. You have impacted my life in ways i could never articulate.

Fuck you cancer

 

On a Team Fat Kid side note*

I had the soft opening for my for my new Mobile food/catering Biz yesterday...basically a chance for my little bro and his buddy (there manning the vehicle) to work out all the kinks before we go live next week. It was a success!

 

I know how much you love the food porn;)

 

Hope you guys have a great Sunday!

Thank you so much you just reminded me about getting the pics up. What you did for Frank was so awesome the pic is put away awaiting a frame so nothing happens to it. I had taken pics and with all the craziness going on totally forgot to post however they are on the facebook now. Again thank you for what you did that was so appreciated.

The support from the UG as always is amazing. A $200 donation came in from the UG yesterday which was so awesome. Someone contacted me on twitter because one of their fighters wanted to wear a franksfight tee and another person contacted me about an interview with frank which he will be doing once he feels ok and since it is an email interview it works with how frank is not always feeling great so he can do at his leisure. I find myself avoiding the computer a lot however it is because I watch Frank go from vibrant to almost gone in a matter of days and while dealing with all of that still have to keep it together to do normal daily things as well as keep up with everything #FranksFight. He is in bed right now and that is pretty much what it has been for two days. Here is the most recent update from the facebook.

 

***Chemotherapy Day 6***

As of yesterday things went really down hill in regards to how Frank feels and is doing. The pre-meds that were given to him wore off yesterday morning. I knew once this happened the side effects would get worse. He has been vomitting since yesterday and does not want to do anything. He has lost close to ten pounds already and has little to no energy. He is barely eating and can only drink water. Yesterday he had some beefaroni however that was it for the day. Today he has not been able to eat anything yet and is just laying there. He has pain however the pain pills just come up when he vomits so that does not help either. Seeing Frank just lay there and want nothing not even a television on tears me up. Knowing that the chemotherapy has not even hit its hardest yet is my concern. Just wanted to pop in and give everyone an update.

Okay, just posted the design for sale: http://www.zazzle.com/franksfight_creepy_t-235113109428499926

In case anyone asks:

* 100% of all proceeds from sales of this design (on any shirt style...which you can customize by using the "Color & Style Options" menu) will be donated to #FranksFight

* Since it's a custom print company, Zazzle's margins for royalties aren't super high (because they handle all production and shipping) in comparison to screen print companies (who require minimum orders and usually don't do individual shipping to customers).

* Thus, I priced the design so that a basic white t-shirt is in the $30 range or below (though other colors/styles are available for an added cost) and approximately 40% of that will go to #FranksFight

* Zazzle frequently offers discounts on shirts via a checkout code they email to subscribers. This does not affect the royalties (Zazzle takes the hit on their end when they do such promotions). So if they offer one, I will post the code on this thread (it's usually good for a day or two).

 

And Creepy, if you PM me an address, I'll gladly order and send you one as a thank you!

Taken from facebook

From the eyes of a caregiver during chemotherapy

I wake up and the first thing I do is check to make sure my husband is alive. Since I know he is alive and does not have a fever I head into the living room until he needs me or until it is time to check on him again. While he is awake I watch as he walks almost runs past me to make it to the bathroom. Since our apartment is small I hear his entire bathroom visit which is heart wrenching to say the least. He has not eaten anything since Saturday however continues to vomit anyway. As he comes out of the bathroom I see him visibly dripping sweat, he is ghost white in color, and very weak. These bathroom episodes while he is awake happen at least once an hour if not more. Each time he comes out of the bathroom I can see it has taken even more from him. If he is real weak he sits in the recliner before heading back into bed. While sitting in the recliner he holds his chest, closes his eyes and I can see the expression of despair all over his face. He does not have the energy to even hold a conversation with me. If he is able to hold a conversation with me it usually entails him telling me how horribly he is suffering from this treatment both physically and mentally. This has been happening since Saturday so three days straight this is what you would see if you looked through my eyes. I often sit alone such as right now wishing I could take all of my husband’s suffering away. Thank you all for supporting us and I hope my eye view gives you a better understanding of what comes along with treatment.

Keep fighting Frank! Thought about you many times while I was at the Expo and out and about in Vegas. We'll have to hit up a buffet at next year's Fight Week.

Hey everyone thanks for the comments. I have been avoiding much to do with #FranksFight only because sometimes it is hard to live it and then have to fundraise, comment, and tweet about it and it can become very overwhelming however I then have to get back at it since without it we would be homeless so I thank god for it all however I do have to step away now and then just to keep myself sane. 

I actually just got done helping Frank with an interview. I was the typist him the speaker lol. As soon as the article is out I will share with all of you. This interview came out of no where and Frank accepted so I am very excited to see Frank's words formed into and article concerning the mma community. I just set up tweetdeck and hope I can get it to work for this time since I find myself not having enough time to do everything. 

I will tell you that today for the first time frank was able to walk by himself to the store and back. This may seem trivial to some however to us this is a major deal. Even if it is only for today I know he was able to do something alone and feel proud about being able to do it. Okay that is enough of my rant I got some medical crap to deal with and see what I can do next for a fundraiser any ideas please shoot them my way.

Super stoked to hear frank got out of the house on his own today.

Not sure how you would even go about it, but I think you should contact Oprah, tell your story, what you are going threw as a mom and wife ... What your husband has had to endure due to our fucked up medical system, the support you have gotten from the MMA community.

She has done some amazing things for people and if anyone deserves a little help its You guys. Just my 2 cents. Phone Post 3.0
