Dr. Beer has passed away.

I have just heard that Dr. Beer has passed away. Our youngest would not have been born if it hadn't been for Dr. Beer diagnosing the immune problems that prevented my carrying a pregnancy to term.

I will bless him always. I pray for his family. I fervently hope that the many couples that he was treating will be able to continue with the treatments that Dr. Beer has prescribed.

The dx. for our pregnancy losses was Category 1,3 and 5 immunological problems. The rx. for our Beer baby was: L.I.T, Prednisone through 20 weeks, and baby aspirin. She was born 3 weeks early after a long struggle with hypertension and gestational diabetes. She's still beautiful and will be 6 years old this summer. God bless your soul Dr. Beer and thank you!

Here is a quote that he used often:

"Innovators are rarely received with joy and established authorities launch into condemnation of newer truths, for at every crossroads to the future are a thousand self-appointed guardians of the past".

After nine miscarriages our youngest
arrived 2 mos early,and she wouldn't
be here at all if not for Dr. Beer.
That was 4 years ago, and I hope
someone is carrying on his work for
other couples.
God bless Dr. Beer

Thank you Katalec. I hope that someone is carrying on his work, too. I had heard that arrangements had been made for couples under his care to continue with treatment that Dr. Beer had prescribed. I can't imagine if Dr. Beer hadn't been there to give us hope and the joy of our little one finally able to be born alive. I was almost over the edge with the losses and nobody but Dr. Beer who cared WHY my babies were dying.

Congratulations on your little miracle. God bless Dr. Beer's soul - he was a gentle and great man.
