Richard "Dick" Frazer
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our loving brother, uncle, cousin, and friend, Dick Frazer, after a courageous battle with aggressive pancreatic cancer. Dick is greatly missed by all his friends and family, and is survived by his brother David (Claudia) and sister Margaret, nieces Amanda (Jon) and Emily (Aaron), nephew Ryan (Jess), and many cousins.
In memoriam of Dick, we created this page to help raise funds for pancreatic cancer research to help by raising awareness and supporting much-needed research for patients battling this disease.
After 4 weeks of symptoms, Dick was finally diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in September and passed only 3 months later. Unfortunately, this is the reality with pancreatic cancer; it leaves little opportunity for hope or survival once diagnosed. It has the lowest 5-year survival rate of any major cancer, at only 8 percent. Earlier this year, it was reported that more patients will die from pancreatic cancer than breast cancer, moving pancreatic cancer from the fourth to the third-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in North America.
