We regretfully announce the passing away of the founder of the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society (CHS), Marie Warder, on October 20, 2014.

On behalf of the board of directors of the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society, current and past, I would like to convey my condolences to the Warder family on the passing of Marie Warder. Marie meant a lot to many people and she meant the world to hemochromatosis sufferers. Marie was a trailblazer in the in the world of hemochromatosis. Her passion for the disorder began as a personal and family matter but over time became so much more. The cumulative effect of her more than 30 years of building awareness of hemochromatosis has made a huge difference for well-being of hemochromatosis sufferers and their families – in Canada and around the world. Rare are the individuals that give of themselves so tirelessly and selflessly. In Marie’s passing , hemochromatosis sufferers and the CHS have lost their guardian; however, in her legacy, Marie will remain our guardian angel. – Patrick Haney, President and Chair of the Board, Canadian Hemochromatosis Society
