The Sean Fisher Memorial Foundation was established in honor of Sean Fisher who passed away on his 13th birthday, August 25, 2008, as the result of an undetected heart condition.
In Sean's memory, the Sean Fisher Memorial Foundation was created to help prevent the unnecessary loss of a seemingly healthy and vibrant child. Our goal is to have underlying heart conditions diagnosed to save the lives of children and save families from the unbelievable shock, trauma and lifelong sorrow a tragedy such as sudden cardiac arrest brings.
Funds raised by the non-profit 501(c)(3) Foundation have provided children with Heart Health Screenings including bloodpressure readings, electrocardiograms, echocardiograms, oxygen saturation testing and height, weight and body mass indexing. These screenings have proved vital in detecting a number of heart conditions, including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which could have resulted in sudden cardiac arrest.
