Kassandre Renè Plum
43 years old
From the words of Jerry Seidel:
My friend Kassandre Renè from Oregon died wednesday (March 9, 2016) due to complications from Lyme disease. Another wonderful person gone.
From her husband Troy:
“Kassandre was battling the late stages of Chronic Lyme disease. She suffered for decades from misdiagnosis of this serious illness. Kassandre worked relentlessly to bring awareness and understanding of this devastating, and currently incurable disease. After being treated by many doctors unaware of the magnitude of Lyme and the lack of effective treatments by those who were, Kassandre was ultimately taken from us by this disease on March 9, 2016. Kassandre’s wishes were for the fight against Lyme to continue through those of us that loved and cherished her.”
