CFIDS and MCS advocate dies

Jim Leroy of suburban Chicago, an organizer of a large support group for multiple chemical sensitivity patients in northern Illinois, died in April. During the 16 years he was sick, he used his writing skills to advocate for both MCS and CFIDS patients and wrote occasionally for the Chronicle. He was also regarded as a compassionate counselor. Jim took his own life, explaining that his health had deteriorated to the point where he felt he could no longer “engage the world in any meaningful way.”
