Brian was taken to the hospital June 18th, 2017 due to seizures and disorientation. He was released June 22nd only to be taken back June 25th due to extreme concern of his health. After a long ten days and MANY tests the Doctors were able to pinpoint the issue. Brian had a large abscess that was growing rapidly on his brain. On June 29th Dr. Jaime Alvarez at Gulf Coast Hospital successfully removed the abscess from Brian’s brain (Side Note: Brian has always joked that many people misspell his name as Brain instead of Brian/now we are using the two together…Brian’s brain). Brian finally got to go home July 4th! Brian had a little scare over the weekend and had to stay at the hospital (and…do more tests) a couple of nights but is back at home again.
Unfortunately, he has been out of work since June 18th and continues to be. Brian is determined to get back on the water but was told by his physicians not to operate any heavy machinery for at least 6 months. He continues to receive treatment and work through the aftermath of brain surgery. His wife Kathleen has her hands full caring for both Brian and their autistic son Colin.
Now that Brian is home, and in stable condition, he could use your help! Captain Brian does not have health insurance and the medical bills have started to pile up. We are trying to raise money to help with hospital bills, therapy, and costs of everyday living (maintaining his household).
A GoFundMe page has been created. Every little bit helps! All funds will go directly to the Frazier Family. Dorothey Frazier (Brian's mother) will be recieving the funds via direct deposit on behalf of Brian and Kathleen Frazier.
We would like to thank everyone for all of the prayers and good vibes sent his way. Please Share!!!
