Our Sympathy for Brian and Kimberly Fischel
Jan 9 2013

On the afternoon of Sunday, January 6th, 2013, Sean, the 7 year old son of Brian and Kimberly Fischel, lost his courageous battle with the rare auto immune disease HLH.  He had been hospitalized since September. Many in the medical field used the word miraculous when speaking about Sean. Indeed, he was a miracle child to those who knew and loved him. He will be greatly missed by so many and there is no doubt that this brave boy is now shining in GOD's light.
