My Story

Sean and his twin brother Ryan began treatment at 4 months old. Sean was a very happy baby specially for what he was going through. The treatment was a very aggressive and fast treatment. He spent the first 10 months of treatment in the hospital. You would never think he was a child with cancer. Always smiling and keeping our hearts hopeful. He loved riding in the red wagon, watching cartoons. He didn't care to much for the meds he had to take when he wasn't able to eat for hours at time. No matter how hard he had it he was always smiling. He relapsed at his end of treatment check up. We then began treatment out in Tucson AZ. This treatment was a bone marrow transplant. Thanks to our second set of twins. We were able to use Aaron's cord blood. As his treatment began he became more ill. No matter how sick he was he could say hi in the middle of getting sick. He would also let you know when he didn't want you do something. Sean was an amazing kid. He beat a very bad infection he got in his face. Also lung problems that put him in a coma for 6 weeks. He came out with flying colors. Although his first transplant, second, and third didn't work. He never gave up. God must of felt he had filled his purpose here on earth. I know I will never touch as many lives as my Sweet Sean Boy did in two years.
