Did you hear that Arijit Guha, the cancer patient whose Woot shirt alarmed airport security, died?
This is a man I might never have heard of if not for Woot. Guha was banned from a flight because he was wearing a humorous T-shirt about airline security (and likely because of the color of his skin). You can read about it here: http://boingboing.net/2012/08/21/delta-refuses-boarding-to-poop.html
He was also a stage IV cancer patient who fought his insurance company and won. Aetna, who had dropped him once he hit his maximum benefit, agreed to cover more than $100,000 in additional medical costs. And the money he raised for his treatment via his website, Poop Strong, went to help other patients.
He seemed like a really cool, smart guy who had a lot to contribute to the world. I'm sorry he's gone. Cancer just sucks. http://www.indiawest.com/news/9951--poop-strong-founder-arijit-guha-succumbs-to-cancer.html
