Stage IV CRC Fighter and Board Member, John MacLeod passed away on April 22, 2019.
“John was a beloved fighter, advocate, and board member for Fight CRC. He came to us reluctantly but he became one of our proudest advocates. He wholeheartedly believed in our mission and our cause. John and Angie were a dynamic duo sharing with us their strength, their journey in looking for clinical trials, and their commitment to hope. He was a source of strength and encouragement for many. John fought hard and we are so grateful that he found us because he made our lives better. His leadership reminded us to always have a sense of urgency in this fight. In his memory, we always will.”
