Steve Mielke - Friend and Warrior
With deep sadness, Steve Mielke passed away
recently on March 2, 2021 after an almost 6.5-year valiant battle with
pancreatic cancer. Our sincere condolences go to his wife Jeanine, his children, and loved ones.
Steve's effervescent smile, personality, and positive outlook on life was so inspirational to other "Warriors" fighting the same battle. His never-ending smile could light-up the darkest room. He exuded the greatest optimism that gave other patients so much hope absent of fear.
He was indeed a very special man. Yes, his smile could light-up the room, but he could light-up the darkest moments of fellow patients around him.
Steve raised funds for revolutionary research and clinical trials led by Dr. Daniel Von Hoff and Dr. Erkut Borazanci who he praised for setting the national standard for treating this formidable disease and blessing him for extending his quality of life for many more years well beyond the original prognosis.
We will severely miss Steve Mielke in so many ways. His love of life and family, his passion for life itself, words of such positive wisdom, and his valiant courage of fighting this dreadful disease even while fighting serious medical traumas beyond those pancreatic cancer.
Donations in Steve's honor are appreciative which permits The Seena Magowitz Foundation to fund innovation research in his honor.
