No one can predict how one will react when confronted with a cancer diagnosis. Dr. Ulrich Schnorf (Ueli) was, during his lifetime and shall continue to be, an inspiration to many. Sadly, Ueli passed away on March 15, 2009 from diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. He was successfully battling GIST since his initial diagnosis in 2000 with surgery, Gleevec (600mg.), and most significantly, with incredible optimism and courage.
