I was hoping I never had to write a 12th article. After writing the 11th article about our colleague: prominent Holistic oncologist, Mitch Gaynor MD in NYC. It was an alleged suicide with Dr. Gaynor. I’d just read his book not too long ago as he’d sent us advanced copies. I was really just in shock for the last few weeks.
I still get emails on nearly a daily basis from his friends, loved ones and even an old neighbor who just cannot believe Dr. Gaynor took his own life.
I’ve waited a few days on this story on Dr. Marie Paas (a chiropractor) but people who say they knew her keep writing me or posting publicly wanting to know why I’m not reporting on it.
The details are scarce, but there are several posts about her passing on Marie Paas’ Facebook page and again, several people who knew her are writing me saying that it was an alleged suicide.
Her website appears to be down as well, though there is a basic front page.
Dr. Paas appears to have been an avid animal lover and advocate for animal rescue as evidenced by her countless posts that stand up for animals rescues and adoptions.
People who knew her are asking on her page if her own pets are alright. That was one of my first thoughts as well as it is so obvious how much she adored animals including her own.
She was a chiropractor who (according to Facebook) graduated from Parker college and her practice appears to be in , Sylacauga, Alabama about 3 hour drive or so from the Florida border (not too far west from Atlanta)
If you call her voice mail listed at her business it still has her voice on the machine as of today.
There are several posts on her page of people who are in absolute shock and disbelief right now and understandably so. Countless people have left messages what a wonderful person she was – always with a smile on her face.
Our heart goes out to her friends, family, patients and loved ones.
