I am very sad to say we lost another HPS'er this week, Enrique. He lived in the Boston area. His family has been involved with the listservs and the Network for the past year at least. Enrique is but another example of why we must so urgently find better treatments, and someday, the cure. He was only in his mid 30s. Please pray for his family in their time of grief that they find some comfort and peace. Please also pray that the memory of HPS'ers like Enrique does not become a point of desperation in the battle to cure HPS, but rather only helps to fuel the urgency and continue to motivate our community in our quest. Please honor his memory by working to make life better for the next generation of HPS'ers.
