    This is very sad.


    If someone does know him or his family, please gently encourage them to take part in the mortality study being conducted by DePaul U. (flyer attached)

    I didn't mention it here but last week a young mother of 2 committed suicide last week. She lived in France.
    RIP Virginie

    RIP Daniel after your 'long painful and courageous battle'.


    (This young man was the same age as my son, it makes me angry too Kina that young people are suffering and dying from this dreadful illness)

    This is really tragic to hear about, way too young to die. He's in a better place now but they really need more research done so this kind of stuff doesnt happen. My prayers and thoughts with the family. R.I.P.

    This is just awful. I'm young with CFS as well and I understand how difficult it must've been for him. He's in a better place now. My prayers and thoughts are with his family.

    My heart goes out to the family of this young man.
    I'm looking forward to the day when ME will be a fully recognized, funded, studied and treated major disease.
    A great part of PWME's suffering is man-made and that's what hurts the most.
    Another brave soldier has lost the double battle against ME and the mortal sin of ignorance and neglect.

    Its just too sad, wasted wasted life, all that talent, intelligence, most respected and most likely to succeed. What a lovely young man he sounded. His parents must be devastated. the cruelty of this disease is overwhelming.

    This fills me with deep sorrow. Just 31. But we can't even say he got 31 good years, can we. This world we live in.

    Do we not have a memorial thread on PR for those who have past away from this disease.

    For those that wish, there is the GoFundME link provided by Kina would be great way to show appreciation for the family from the ME/CFS community
    Personal condolences can made at this site

    I am so sorry to hear this and always so saddened by these threads :cry:. May the memory of Daniel Strenge be a blessing to his family and friends and some day there will be a cure and no one else will have to die like this. Rest in peace, Daniel.

    So saddend by this news. I did not know Daniel or his family but it seems he was a gifted young man whose life ended way to early because of this damned illness. I made a small contribution in honor of his name and MECFS research.

    RIP Daniel and much thanks to his family for trying to raise 10K for MECFS research. http://www.gofundme.com/dts_cfs

    Not sure if it is online, but National CFIDS based in Massachussetts has a memorial to those who passed, via their newsletter.

    This is beyond upsetting :cry:
    I didn't know him but I feel like I did. I read his story and it is identical to my own. Both high school athletes, born in St Paul and only a couple years apart. Both forced to live the same nightmare, never getting any answers. Seems he was a very smart and talented young man with so much potential. Every time I hear of someone with CFS passing away it makes me so angry. What does it take for CFS to be taken seriously? How many more amazing people have to pay with their life because of the ignorance of society and the medical community? How many more people have to say goodbye to loved ones after watching them suffer so helplessly?
    Rest in peace, Dan. I hope the next world treats you better than this one did. You will be missed, and never be forgotten.<3
