Hi friends! Last year when Sean's friend Betsy and her mom Cara launched Sean's Sidekicks to support Sean, he had just been diagnosed with medulloblastoma. Here we are a year later, and Sean is looking forward to finishing treatment in May. In fact, barring further delays, Sean will have his last treatment on May 2, his 14th birthday!
This year's Race for Hope on Sunday, May 4th will be a big milestone for Sean and all of us who care about him. He has endured a long year with 6 weeks of radiation in Philadelphia, followed by 9 scheduled cyles of chemotherapy at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, along with many tests and doctor appointments along the way.
We are grateful and fortunate that Sean has tolerated his treatment so well, and his MRIs have remained clear. He's been a pretty typical 8th grader at Lakelands Park Middle School - though the only one who gets to wear a hat in school! But many brain tumor patients are not so fortunate and we look forward to being part of the mission to raise funds to help find better treatments for, and cures for all brain tumors.
Please join us at this year's Race For Hope DC as we celebrate Sean's milestones, and raise money to ensure milestones for all brain tumor patients. If you cannot join us, we hope you will please consider making a donation to Sean's Sidekicks. We also invite you to follow Sean's progress on his Caring Bridge page: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/seanquinn/journal
