R.i.p. David Marc Fischer

Recommended Posts

David Marc Fischer, owner of the blog Gluten Free NYC, died on Aug. 6, of a rare, agressive form of Leukemia. He was 47 years old. I never met him, but enjoyed his Gluten Free NYC blog - which is still online and contains a wealth of very interesting information and features. He was a very busy Celiac Disease activist, and will be greatly missed.

Edit: Thanks for correcting the title.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!
