On April 27, 2018, Bob Diesel was admitted to Tufts Medical Center in Boston for a foot infection and received devastating news that his foot would have to be amputated due to a rare flesh eating bacteria that was rapidly spreading. On April 30th they amputated his foot and on May 3rd they amputated just below the knee.

Bob is doing great, is in good spirits and happy to be alive (60% die from this bacterial infection).
He cannot walk or work, the healing process is long, it is unclear when he will be able to get a prosthesis and be able to walk and work again. In the meantime he needs our help to cover food, living expenses, healthcare etc.

Please donate and be as most generous as possible and share this with everyone you know who loves Bob as much as we do. He needs our prayers, Well Wishes E-mails, Calls, Texts, Facebook Message and Visits too. We are asking the House Music Community, Family, Friends and Fans of Bob from Boston and beyond to donate what you can from your heart.
Our goal is to raise $30,000.

Thank you.
- The Friends of Bob Diesel

Bob would like to thank all of you for your kind words in email, texts, messaging, calling, visits, goody bags and shared meals as well as the generous donations to his GoFundMe fundraiser. Bob is in need of an apartment A.S.A.P that is wheelchair accessible, until he gets fitted for his prosthetic. If anyone has any contacts or information that can help please leave a message or reach out to Bob directly.
Bob has learned quite a lot from his operation and rehab experiences. He has remained positive, upbeat and in good spirits, thanks in part to all of you. He needs help now in finding a place and reaching his goal. Bob is almost done with his rehabilitation and ready to go on to the next phase to get fitted for his prosthetic and in February he should be receiving a new Robotic Prosthetic Leg courtesy of the MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab!
Thank you for all the love and support that is given by all of you.

Peace and Blessings.

Bob recently saw the wound doctor and he is recovering nicely. The wound is almost healed and in another 6 weeks or so he will begin the process for his prosthesis. Look out world Bionic Bob is on his way. He is doing well and is humbled by the outpouring of love and support. He is also looking for accessible housing as he is using a wheelchair now and cannot return to his old apartment because he cannot navigate too many stairs. If you know of such reach out to him. If you live locally consider visiting him at the rehab. Brush Hill Care Center, 1200 Brush Hill Road, Milton, MA. Please continue to share this Go Fund Me Campion with others that love Bob as much as we do. Happy Summer and thanks to all of you for your generosity.
