Many of you are probably aware of the condition of Fisher's son. If not it is rather sad:

As Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher prepares for the biggest battle of his coaching life, he and his wife, Candi, are opening up on the biggest battle they face off the field.

In 2011, the couple's youngest son, Ethan, was diagnosed with a disease called Fanconi anemia, a rare blood disorder that can cause bone-marrow failure, leukemia and tumors, according to Fanconi.org. The average lifespan of someone suffering from the disease is between 28 and 30 years.

“That moment will always be pivotal in our family,” Candi Fisher said of her son's diagnosis, per USA Today's Laken Litman. “I don’t think we take things for granted like we used to. We cherish a lot more.”

Although the number of documented patients is unclear, the chances of a child suffering from the recessive disease are about 1-in-131,000. Only 31 children each year on average are diagnosed with the condition in the United States.

To a lesser extent I want FSU to beat Auburn so I dont have to hear about the SEC being the best for a year, but to a much greater extent I want a victory for Ethan.

Very happy kid. Adorable as well. It's sad but they do everything possible to make sure he's comfortable.

Well they are rich he is probably better off than most kids in his situation, but still worst off than most kids in this country. The good news is he can still live a life even up to his 30 or possibly 40s.

I would not trade wealth for 50% of my life. Seems like a happy kid let's hope he is as pain free as possible.
