Marie Heimann Davidson lived a full and predominantly happy life. Sadly, she passed away at home just before her 20th birthday on January 18, 2020. Marie died of signet ring colon cancer less than 2 years after her diagnosis. 

Marie would whole-heartedly endorse the Michael P. Brown Colon Cancer Foundation for its fight to find a cure for signet ring cancer as well as for its founders’ positive way to “get busy living!” Her family are very grateful for Angie Brown’s support and generous kindness. It’s an honor and healing to be part of raising funds for the Seidman Center of Excellence for research that we hope will ultimately save lives from signet ring cancer. Marie agreed to donate some cancer cells to Seidman as part of their research hoping it will be part of helping future patients.
