Remembering “Dr. Tom” through a virtual memorial celebration.
Dr. Tom Marsilje was an outspoken, optimistic, stage IV colorectal cancer patient and cancer researcher who, in the midst of fighting his own disease, became a blogger, speaker, panelist, model and advocate. He was committed to sharing his wealth of knowledge about cancer research and clinical trials to CRC patients around the world through easy-to-understand, patient-friendly explanations. He passed away on November 14, 2017. The community will unite the weekend before Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month kicks off to honor his legacy.
Please remember Tom on this day by lighting a blue luminary bag or candle. Then share your tribute via social media.
