Aschoff, who had ties to Atlanta, was initially diagnosed with pneumonia but Katy Berteau said doctors found something else before he passed.
Aschoff went to the emergency room after a flight on December 1 for what he said was a virus that had “morphed into this monster.” He began antibiotics the next day.
December 4 and 5, he tweeted about having pneumonia.
Antibiotics did not work and he got worse, Berteau previously tweeted, and he began many tests, including ones that looked at his bone marrow and biopsies of his lungs.
Doctors began treating him for a presumed diagnosis of HLH. He died three days after being moved to intensive care.
They say he died from non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Take a look at some of these tweets that may make you rethink how he passed away.
