Since Frank first posted to the UG about his second cancer diagnosis and needing help to pay for medical expenses the UG and MMA community have gotten behind Frank and our family and continued to support us. Frank passed away on October 18, 2013. He passed away a fighter because of all the amazing support he had from everyone around the world and we have The UG to thank for that. I continue to struggle to pay back all the medical expenses and bills that woere accrued during my husband's cancer battle. Again Dojo and Ian "Uncle Creepy" McCall have gotten together to help raise money so me and my sons will not end up homeless because we fought to do whatever we had to to give Frank everything he needed while alive. Check out the links on this page to see how much the UG and MMA community have stepped up to help #FranksFight.
As his wife not only did I lose my husband but cancer left me penniless. This fundraiser will allow me to slowly climb out of the debt I am in due to my husband's diagnosis. We put every last penny into anything he needed to survive and live out his remaining days. Now I have had to change my phone number just to get rid of the calls for medical payments and such.
This fundraiser is a bit different in that every $10 donated will give you a chance to win an
Official Topps UFC Bloodlines 2013 Ian McCall autographed sketch card by JM Smith. Hand-signed on the back by the artist and autographed on the front by Ian himself. It is a 1-of-1, meaning there are no copies or reprints.
Donate $10 get one chance to win......donate $20 get two chances to win...so on and so forth

I had a few of the blank samples Topps sent me to experiment with from last year's Bloodlines set to see how I would do working at such a small size. So I used one of the samples to draw the toughest fighter I know. Keep fighting, Frank!
Dojo has continued to help raise money for our family since the beginning. He has auctioned off some of his artwork, sold items on Zazzle, spread the word, and wrote blogs about Frank. Dojo is now a part of our family and we wanted to share how wonderful of a person he is.
