Update on Martin Delaney's Health

January 21, 2009

Dear friends and colleagues,

I've been asked to give an update on Martin's health. I'm sorry this news is delivered in such an impersonal way. As you know, there are many people around the country who love Marty and it is easiest to send updates to a group.

Unfortunately, this update does not contain good news. On Monday night, Jan. 12, Martin was admitted to the emergency room with many symptoms associated with advanced liver disease. Since then, his health has taken a turn for the worse and he is showing signs of kidney failure as well. He has since been discharged from the hospital and has entered home hospice care. At this point, all treatment is for minimizing discomfort.

Thank you Martin! I hope you are not in too much pain. Through your efforts i was able to get a grip on HIV and have been healthy since '85! There was many a time i thought "who is this guy to do such a thing; how amazing, what a thankless job." Rest easy my friend, if you must, go softly into that sweet night.....
