Bob’s Fight Against Bladder Cancer

$2,500 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 46 people in 18 months
This is for my dad, Bob beckrich, A.K.A “my baby doll”. My dad recently retired back in May 2017. He found out he was diagnosed with bladder cancer in June. Tuesday, January 2nd we got bad news that the cancer has spread to his lymph node (pelvic area). Long story short, my baby doll begins his first chemo treatment on Monday, January 8th. He will undergo chemo for about 5 months. If all goes well, he will then get his bladder removed. He is unable to get radiation at this time, because it would cause too much scar tissue/damage on the bladder which means it can not be removed. I want to see my dad “normal” again. I want him to be able to go to the bathroom without feeling pain. I want him to be able to sit on the couch and visit without being in pain. I want my baby doll to be healthy. I want my dad back! My dad is a fighter! I know he will come out on top as always! Any dollar amount is greatly appreciated! Thank you! Your generosity means the world!

I noticed this Friday morning while driving to work at 6:25 am how beautiful the sunrise was, and just knew that was a sign saying God is going to gain an angel today. I had a feeling, I actually almost went to my parents house realizing I would be late going to work just to see my dad one last time. I was at my parents house until 9:00 last night, and told him how much I love him and it’s ok for him to go. We will all be fine. My baby doll, to others poopsy pops, Harry and Hebert my dad had so much love in his heart. He always thought of others. He wanted the best for his family and worked hard for them, especially for my mom. He was such a fighter through so much pain. He fought hard and was strong for 13 months of pure hell. You may have lost your battle to cancer, but you are my hero, and the best father any girl could ask for! You will always be surrounded by the unconditional love you gave us, which we comforted you with before you left us! While my heartbreaks from losing you, I’m at peace because I know your no longer in pain watching over us, and we promise to continue to make you proud. Thank you for the sign you gave us at 9:45 after you passed away at 8:00. My sister Jen went to wash her hands in the kitchen and the wind chime above the sink was chiming like crazy! She didn’t bump it and it scared her. That was my dad saying he got his wings! He’s at peace! We told him to give us a sign once he’s up there letting us know that everything is fine. “Every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings”! My dad loved the movie “It’s a wonderful life”. I love you with all my heart and you’ll always be with me. I’m so honored to call you my father because you’ve inspired me to become a remarkable person - who I wouldn’t have become without you. You will be remembered as the most loving, selfless, amazing husband, father, grandfather and brother to all of us. Rest in peace dad. I wish RIP meant Return If Possible. It’s going to be hard, but hard is NOT impossible. Separated by death, together by love! We love you so much. your baby doll.
Visitation is Monday from 4-8
Service Tuesday 10-11

Thank you so much for those of you showing extra love and support for my family by calling, and sending messages. Right now we just want the family to be with my dad. He has been sleeping pretty much all day. He no longer eats or drinks. He can’t have a conversation. We give him his medicine in syringes. His in a hospital bed and can no longer walk. It’s worse than I think you realize. We are just waiting for him to be in peace. I hope and pray it happens sooner than later.

Late last night the hospice nurse stopped by and said my baby doll is in his 1-2 weeks stage so it will happen sooner than expected...hot mess.

First of all thank you again to my very generous friends for donating again! My family and I greatly appreciate your generosity!
After work tonight, even though I was exhausted I needed to see my baby doll, since he was sleeping when I wanted to see him in-between my shifts. Today,
It was very hard to see him in the kind of state that he was. He was so confused and he had no idea what was
going on, but not in as much pain. I was almost worried we had to take him to the ER. I give my mom, and brother’s props for doing what they do on a regular basis. He just started taking dilaudid and today just started methadone. I think if he doesn’t turn around by the end of the week, we need to switch hospice centers. I’m not too impressed with Allina so far. They didn’t want to change my dad’s dressing or his bag? WTH?!? That’s how you treat someone on their way out? Every day my dad is getting worse, little by little. I wish there was something I could do!
