Sean's Sidekicks

We're back! After a year hiatus, Sean chose to resurrect the team!  He wants to raise awareness & funds to help improve the future of people with brain tumors.  

As most of you know, Sean was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma in 2013 when he was in 7th grade.  After surgery at CNMC, 6 weeks of radiation at CHOP, and chemotherapy for another year at CNMC, Sean finished treatment before starting high school.  Sean is a junior now, and we're so thankful that his regular MRIs have been stable.  This has been a rough school year, though, because Sean has been suffering some late effects of radiation, including thyroid and other hormone imbalances and deficiencies, as well as depression which may have been caused or worsened by the late effects.  

Things are looking up now, and Sean is hopeful and determined to participate in making a difference for others with brain tumors.  Please join us for the 20th Race for Hope on Sunday, May 7!  If you can't join us, but want to be part of Sean's effort to make a difference, please donate and spread the word.  

The goal isn't just curing the brain tumors, but preserving the quality of life for survivors.  Sean is just beginning to understand how his treatment will affect his body and his life.  

The Race for Hope - DC presented by Cushman & Wakefield raises funds to support innovative research initiatives and provide information for brain tumor patients and their families. This amazing event relies on the dedication and enthusiasm of individuals, families, teams, volunteers, sponsors and donors. Thank you for your support in helping us find a cure for brain tumors!
