It is with great sadness that I bring the news that Peejay has finished his run. Another person, cut down way too young from this wretched disease.

He got to see Star Wars....thanx to everyone that helped. I wish you all peace.

My heart goes out to his family and friends. May fond memories bring you comfort during this hard time.

Yes, thank you for posting. I noticed Peejay hadn't posted since an upcoming appt where he was not expecting positive news re: options in tx. He seemed an upbeat person, sharing through his podcast & here. My sympathy to his family & friends for their loss, their grief.

I enjoyed Peejay's personality through his posts here.

Gutted to hear this, and it happened so fast. He made his last post here:
PEEJAY wrote:Wow, thanks for the outpour guys! I took a few days off to get my head around the news. All of this is just lovely to come back through and there are a ton of good ideas here for me to get looking into!

Those are the words of a young man who was positive, appreciative and brave even in what eventuated to be his last few weeks here.

Much respect and my condolences to his family.

Really sad to hear this news. He lost his life far too early. This wretched disease has robbed him, his wife and daughter, and his entire family.
