Support for Fellmann Family

During a magical year studying abroad in France (1999 to be exact!), Emily (Raiche) met her prince - Denis Fellmann. Their love and emotional connection is obvious to all who have met them. They have built a beautiful life together with their three amazing boys - Etienne, Xavier, and Louis.

On Friday September 14th, Denis was out for a run in the forest preserve and suffered a sudden cardiac arrest.  He was brought to Palos Community hospital and immediately treated.  It is now September 23rd and we are watching him every day to see how he emerges from what appears to be an anoxic brain injury.  His overall body (lungs, heart, etc) are in great shape.    The cause of the event is likely an arrhythmia however the concern and all focus right now is on the brain and its recovery. The prognosis is unclear but we are all keeping our hopes up high.   Emily's family is nearby and has been helping with the daily chores with the boys (school, soccer, being a kid).  Please keep her and the family in your thoughts.  

We are starting this campaign to help with their expenses. Please give whatever you can.

Leur amour et leur connexion émotionnelle sont évidents pour tous ceux qui les ont rencontrés. Ils ont construit une belle vie avec leurs trois garçons incroyables - Etienne, Xavier et Louis.

Cette merveilleuse famille est maintenant confrontée à la lutte de leurs vies. Denis Fellmann faisait du jogging et son cœur s'est arrêté. Emily et ses garçons font face à des difficultés extraordinaires. Nous commençons cette campagne pour aider avec leurs dépenses. Veuillez donner ce que vous pouvez.
