Dominique Alexander Fischer was a beautiful young man who loved life, family, people and most importantly God. He was the "All-American Kid" who excelled at baseball, basketball and football at his beloved Detroit Catholic Central High School. Dominique's signature smile captured our hearts, while allowing us to see the beauty of his heart. His future appeared to be very bright until November of 2007, at age 20 when he was diagnosed with bi-polar & schizophrenia disorders. On June 27, 2010, at 23 years old, Dominique committed suicide.
To provide access to educational resources and support to individuals and the families of those living with mental illness. To support local agencies who provide support to families living with mental illness, suicide prevention information and counseling to those who have lost loved one's to either. TO OFFER HOPE!
What We Do
Dominique would want others to learn and benefit from his life experiences; the good and the not so good. He would want us to help the individuals, their families and friends cope with the challenges of living with mental illness. But he would want us to tell of the joys in his life as well. It is in that spirit that we established The Dominique Fischer Memorial Foundation (DFMF).
Dominique loved helping people. We know he would want us to do good works in his name. The DFMF will:
Establish the DFMF scholarship @ Detroit Catholic Central High School
Raise funds, awareness and access to resources that support individuals and families living with mental illness
Fund and execute community service projects
Host a variety of "FUN" fundraising events
