Here are links to a number of different news reports about our friend and fellow multiple myeloma patient Elijah Alexander: Associated Press, ABC Action News, Denver Star-Telegraph. Still no definitive answer as to cause of death. Several unconfirmed reports do say it was “myeloma related.” The Post-Chronicle wrote this in Their March 26th report:
Elijah Alexander, a 10-year NFL veteran who retired after the 2001 NFL season, has passed away due to complications from multiple myeloma. He was 39.
I have learned from Elijah’s widow, Kim, that our good friend “suffered an aneurysm which forced me to make the decision to take him off of life support.”
I’m so sorry, Kim! No one should ever be forced to make a decision like that; especially a loving wife and mother.
Feel good, keep smiling and don’t waste a minute of your precious day–Elijah was here one day–gone the next. So strong, so committed. Now he’s gone. Pat
