Alan Fink – In Memoriam

Alan L. “Alf” Fink died Wednesday, April 13, 2005 after a long battle with GIST. He was 45. Alan was diagnosed in September of 2000. He had surgery weeks later, and also underwent a then-new clinical procedure called photodynamic therapy, which involves using lasers to burn tumor cells after administration of a drug that makes the cancer more sensitive to the laser treatment.
