This sucks.

From Trent:
It is with great sadness that the Cincinnati Reds announce the death of former pitching coach Vern Ruhle, who died at 11:00 p.m. last night at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston of complications from a donor stem cell transplant for the treatment of multiple myeloma.
My condolences to Ruhle's family and friends. For whatever reason, I've been taking a personal interest in this story over the past year. It's such a shame that it ended this way.

If you're interested in learning more about multiple myeloma and its treatment with stem cells, I found that this website gave a nice overview.
