RIP to our friend, Bob Tufts

In 2009, he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. He underwent pill-based and liquid chemotherapy and reached a recovery point at which he could undergo and autologous stem cell transplant. As of May 2010, he was in almost complete remission.[citation needed]

Tufts was a patient advocate and founder of My Life Is Worth It. He was an active speaker and frequently tweeted about issues regarding the need to involve patients more in the healthcare process.[citation needed]

Tufts died on October 4, 2019, from an infection brought on by complications from a stem cell transplant on August 23.[9][10] He was 63.

I was surprised to run across his “In Memoriam” on bb-ref and I hadn’t seen any mention on BBTF, so forgive me if I’m doubling up.
