Breda – August 16, 2018 – It is with a heavy heart that we have to inform you that John Polling has passed away last night. Since the end of 2016 he suffered from Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). After the diagnosis, John entered the fight against AML and progressed through the treatments in a rapid pace. Even though he entered the process with bravery and a positive attitude, he was unable to gain the upper hand. Last night he passed away in the presence of his family, in the Erasmus MC hospital in Rotterdam.
