Sean is a fun loving 6-year-old boy who enjoys creative play such as make believe and theatre. He has lots of fun doing this with his three younger siblings. He also likes playing soccer and baseball with family and friends. When Sean’s mother was pregnant, the doctors discovered Sean had cysts on his lungs. After birth he was closely monitored by the doctors. After undergoing a thorough medical examination at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center at age 2, Sean was diagnosed with pleural pulmonary blastoma. He underwent chemotherapy, radiation treatment and stem cell transplants. Thanks to Maria Fareri, Sean is in remission now and very much enjoys school and playing with his family and friends.
Sean and his family talk about health care reform at Family Advocacy Day.
