Remembering Teddy

Most of you probably followed the story of little Teddy Fish. If you didn't, you can read about him here. Sadly, little Teddy lost his battle with Menkes yesterday.

His family posted this message on Teddy's Facebook page this morning:

Today is a very sad #TeddyTuesdayYesterday the strongest Superhero around lost his yearlong battle against Menkes. It was the strength of #TeamTeddy that got Teddy's family through some of the tough days, and they will need our strength as their toughest days are yet to come. We hope you will join us in sharing this picture with your friends and family in support of both the Fish and Coffey families. We will forever love you Teddy Fish....all the way to the moon and back. Rest in peace angel baby.

Please join me in sending thoughts and prayers to the Fish family during this incredibly difficult time. As a mom to a child close to Teddy's age, I cannot imagine what they must be going through right now. I know that Mary and Alex would appreciate any uplifting words you could leave on Teddy's Facebook page.


  1. How terribly sad. Sending prayers to his family today

  2. Leslie,

    Thank you for bringing this story to light for so many people a few months back. I hate to hear the news but know that baby is up there flying around with his cape taking care of others and watching over all of us down here. #TeamTeddy #fumenkes

    We will never forget you Teddy Fish!
