Adam Krief, a Jewish father of three from Los Angeles who was diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer in July, died on Tuesday at the age of 32 following complications from a bone-marrow transplant. Although he found a bone marrow match in December, his body ultimately rejected it.
Through social media, the world got a charming, tragic glimpse into this young dad’s life. On the Facebook and Instagram pages for #Hope4Adam, the campaign Krief launched to reach out to donors and record his medical journey to fight primary myelofibrosis, he shared photos at various steps of his chemotherapy treatment process. In the early images, he looks healthy on the outside, posing with his wife, Lia, and his children, Lev, Joel, and Luca, during quiet moments at home. More recent pictures show him hospital-ridden, having lost considerable weight. In each snapshot, Krief’s personality shines through—whether he and one of his sons are sticking out their tongues in unison or when he’s giving his daughter a cookie at the hospital, protected by a face mask and gloves.
