Update on Audiogon Member Almarg

I have some very sad news and information to share.

Al ( @almarg ), through his wife Margaret, asked me to post the following...

{"The attached letter to you was dictated at his bedside to me earlier today. I hope I got his words down precisely as he desired."}

"Unfortunately Al has an extremely aggressive form of Mantle Cell Lymphoma coupled with a mutation of gene TP53 (known as tumor suppressor gene). He has received outstanding advanced treatment with the latest and greatest chemo drugs at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale in New Haven. Unfortunately it appears that he only has a few weeks to live.

Please feel free to post a substantive update [on Audiogon]. He has not been able to do that because of his condition. Please indicate that he has enjoyed solving problems, researching others,’ and learning a good deal himself while developing his answers.

He and I wish everyone all the best of health and success in audio endeavors, in that order.

Al [and Margaret]

I will post my very personal response tomorrow.
Thank you David for letting us know. He is a true role model of knowledge with humility. My prayers go out for him & his family during this very trying time. 
So sorry to hear of this news. May Al & his family be blessed & supported in these trying times.
Al and Marg have been wonderful! I am praying that the USC studies might have a chance to work!!Doug
I didn’t get to know Al like many of you have, but he is obviously a fine gentleman and much loved.  I pray for his comfort and strength and the same for his loved ones.  We all hope for a best outcome.
I am sad to hear this. Al is one the great, magnanimous audiogon posters, taking time to research answers to a lot technical questions. I certainly appreciate him helping me avoid a mistake.
