Frank's Fighting Fund

$3,615 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 32 people in 34 months
Frank Schier, longtime Editor and Publisher of The Rock River Times, has been diagnosed with having suffered a stroke, as well as lung and brain cancer. He is undergoing expert treatment at Swedish American Hospital.

“What a long and strange trip I’ve been,” Frank told his staff after his diagnosis.

“It has been a pleasure and at times painful to serve the Rockford community. I really wondered what I should say about this but I decided I should always tell the truth. I’d like to thank all our supporters and detractors for making my life interesting. I am not giving up the fight and expect a successful treatment plan."

Help us collect the funds to see Frank fight off this terrible disease, and help keep this voice of the community around for a long time to come!
