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.”

Donations in Kassandre’s memory can be made through the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) at .This donation website was set up by her family.

  1. Troy and family,

    What a beautiful photo of her and her best friend in addition to you, Troy.

    I didn’t know you; just reading about you all now.

    My husband, Jack Gordon, is 1st one shown in Lisa’s newsletter; so I feel your loss 1st hand.


    Best wishes, hugs/prayers,

  2. So sorry for another loss to Lyme.How many will go too soon before something is done about this. Just some acknowledgment from our government would be a big start on helping people through this. May she rest in peace ♡

  3. My heart breaks everyday seeing my daughter as well as partner and myself struggling with this disease let alone the thousands of others who struggle day to say with Lyme and co-infections. I am so very sorry for it seems this world has lost another beautiful soul. My heart goes out to her family. If her sweet dog needs a family we are looking to rescue a sweet heart such as her dog is.

  4. I got to know her very well, so sorry for her family,she was a great person that loved animals and life.

  5. Praying for all family and friends of this beautiful lady.. May she be free from pain dancing with the angels.💚
