Our beloved son, brother, uncle, and friend, Fadi Haddad, passed away in peace and surrounded by loved ones on November 29, 2017, after a brief and courageous battle with cancer. We have been overcome with the outpouring of love, support, and concern for Fadi and for our family during this difficult time. It has been moving to hear so many stories of the way that Fadi impacted all of your lives so significantly through the remarkable generosity of his heart, humor and unparalleled passion for life, opera, books and beauty in the world.

As a family, we would like to continue Fadi’s legacy of supporting organizations that work with vulnerable children worldwide. We plan to facilitate the education and resources for the next generation of Fadi Haddads, healers that work and care for this special group of vulnerable young people. The focus of this fund will be on trauma and attachment initiatives, and integrative mental health treatments.
