Archangels Michael and Gabriel Coptic Relief Organization was formed by Mohsen and Nevine Isaac and Miranda Gabriel. The organization is dedicated to the memory of Hani Gabriel, who tragically passed away from colon cancer on January 27, 2013 at the young age of 44 after a five year battle.
Hani was a man of faith and deacon at St. Mary's Coptic Orthodox Church in Ambridge. While he was terminally ill, he mentioned a few times that if God were to heal him, he would leave his full-time job, which he loved, and give his life in service to the poor. Hani spoke of starting a foundation to help the poor and needy in Egypt. He also spoke of possibly traveling to Egypt to use his service as a doctor to help the sick there.
Hani was a compassionate pain management doctor and human being. He truly cared for his patients and wanted to help each one of them the best way he could. He was beloved by all his patients and everyone who knew him.
Hani leaves behind his wife Miranda and two sons, Christopher and Andrew. According to Miranda, Hani, who in his short time on this earth had done so much for others and had touched so many lives, wanted to do so much more. The founders of the organization are working diligently to fulfill Hani’s dream and continue his legacy with its formation.
