Sean Fischel, HLH Warrior

Last fall we had the oppotunity to interview with the Philadelphia inquire on our recent experience with HLH. It connected us with the Fischel family of Moorestown, NJ. The Fischel's youngest son Sean had been transferred into Philadelphia Children's Hospital for treatment for HLH. He put up one amazing battle that surpases even my own. He is truly one amazing kid I wish we could have met and gone fishing when he was better. After everything he had been through he managed to get a smile for camera on his moms updates. It was so exciting seeing him travel outside of his room in a wheelchair for the very first time a few weeks back. I remember how much freedom it gave me.
Rest easy little Sean. We will miss you.

In memory of Sean Fischel, age 7, HLH Warrior

October 2005 - January 6, 2013

Here is a small clip from Sean's Campaign that took place in September during Histiocytosis Awareness month where he surpassed his goal of $7,000!
"Our warrior Sean lost his battle with HLH on the afternoon of Sunday, January 6, 2013. He fought courageously for three months and made remarkable strides towards recovery. 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 but he will remain in our hearts and souls forever. We have no doubt that this brave boy is now shining in GOD's light."
