182 Rich Cronin

In March 2005, Cronin sought treatment for constant headaches, and was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia. He underwent chemotherapy at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. By January 2006, his leukemia was in remission, but recurred in 2007. He subsequently started the Rich Cronin Hope Foundation for Leukemia to raise awareness.
In the summer of 2010, Cronin suffered a relapse, and he was treated at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston. On the afternoon of September 8, 2010, Cronin died at the Brigham and Women's Hospital after suffering a stroke secondary to his leukemia due to complications from medicine he was taking to offset GVHD (graft-versus-host disease), which he had been struggling with since the transplant. He was 36 years old. His funeral was held at St. Joseph Church in Kingston, Massachusetts on September 13, attended by family and friends. He is buried at Vine Hills Cemetery in Plymouth County, Massachusetts. - tangerine77
