Toronto dad dies after fighting for experimental treatment.

We are sorry to inform you that our father, Darcy Doherty, passed away at home surrounded by family on Tuesday, July 10. Darcy was a tremendous partner, father, sibling, uncle, neighbour and friend. He is greatly missed. We also wanted to thank you for all of your efforts and good wishes over the past number of weeks as we shared his story and tried to get him access to a new cancer drug. Although unsuccessful, we are proud that in raising these issues and sharing Darcy's story we provided information and hope to many people facing a similar diagnosis. Our whole family is grateful and has been touched by the kindness and generosity that we have received from you and so many during our dad’s illness. Thank you.
