Sean Brophy's Fundraiser:

In January our beautiful 7 month old Ryder passed away suddenly. Ryder loved to laugh and be entertained by his five older brothers and sisters. He knew he was a part of something special, and it is our sincere wish that something special can come out of his passing.

Before he passed, Ryder was diagnosed with some gastrointestinal issues, though it is unclear if they contributed to his passing.

In 2009 Ryder's older brother Fisher was born with a rare Gatro-intestinal birth defect. After two failed surgeries, we brought him to CHOP. The pediatric GI staff truly saved his life, performing a surgery other "top hospitals" said could not be done. Today Fisher is a happy, loving 5 year-old. It is our goal that Ryder's passing, can in some way help CHOP continue to perform these kinds of miracles for other children and families.

We have established this fund, so that monies donated to our family, and money from any one who would contribute, can go toward the Division Chief Fund for the general use of The Division of Gastroenterology, Hematology, and Nutrition. We know that any amount will go to good use, but it is our hope that we are able to do something that will have an impact.

With love and thanks to you all for your support and well wishes.
