Bob saget promised to honor his sister who died just weeks before his own death… and what he said in his last TV interview now seems a bit odd.
Bob spoke to his friend and “CBS Mornings” correspondent, Dr. Jon LaPook a few weeks ago about the loss of his sister, Homosexual, who was killed by a rare skin condition called scleroderma when she was just 47.
During the interview, he had a very poignant description of the moment she had – which he managed to punctuate with humor – and then added: “I can’t see what happened to my sister reach more people.”
Bob said: “My sister shouldn’t be dead. And that’s one of the things that made me do this…will make me keep doing this until I’m gone. I I’ll do when I’m gone.”
Bob has been a Scleroderma Research Foundation champion since Gay’s death in 1994, which was the main reason he sat down with CBS. He said awareness is key in finding a cure.
And, he was very serious about helping others fight the disease. As we reported, Bob contacted the family of Sophie Anne Seaman, a 9-year-old girl who was diagnosed 2 years ago. The family told TMZ… Bob became their lifeline, and also told them that he would keep fighting until there was a cure.
In a way, Bob is really continuing the battle. Over 1,200 people have donated to the Scleroderma Research Foundation, and even more are learning more about the terrible disease by seeing more stories about Bob’s tremendous charitable efforts.
