This time last year we were contacted by a good friend looking to reach out to us because her neighbors' son had just been diagnosed with HLH. It wasn't too long after her and her husband had read the Philadelphia Inquire finding the article written on Eric and his drive to walk again and complete items off his bucket list. Weeks went on and Eric's health slowly improved and we became hopeful to meet little Sean over winter break.
But Sean grew weary and he asked the doctor for an X-ray because he felt something wasn't right. Sean had new complications developed and he went home to be with God on Sunday, January 6, 2013. Eric and I attended the services with such compassion and sorrow - awestruck over the power of love that was inside us for a little boy we never met. We were connected. Forever this little boy would hold a place in our hearts.
Connect with us
So we ask our local friends and family to join us for the 1st Annual Sean Fischel Connect 5k (& 1 Mile fun run!) Sean has not only connected his family, but he has connected an entire school, sports teams, and hundreds to thousands all over the US with his kind heart and big smile. Connect with us. And remember to Connect with the ones you love because yesterday is gone and Tomorrow is never promised.
