Meet Sean

Hometown: Blacklick, Ohio
Age: 10
Diagnosis: Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Sean's story began on July 21, 2011. He was brought to the Nationwide Children’s Hospital ER with tiredness and a weird feeling in his arms. After the standard battery of tests and blood work, Sean’s family learned that he had leukemia.

Sean spent 12 days in the hospital for treatment and over the course of the next year he went through chemo, bone marrow biopsies, and spinal taps. Sean began the maintenance phase of his treatment in late August of 2012. Although the start of this phase was rough for Sean, with medications that made him tired and impacted his liver functions, things eventually began to go as planned and Sean took an exciting Make-A-Wish trip to Disney in November. On January 22nd, Sean was scheduled for a routine spinal tap and chemo. During the blood work, Sean’s doctors saw that his counts were not right and ordered a bone marrow biopsy to determine what was going on. When the results came back, Sean’s family found out that his leukemia had returned. Sean had 15 weeks of intense treatment followed by a bone marrow transplant. Currently, Sean is off treatment and returns to Nationwide Children’s for follow-up appointments regarding the bone marrow transplant.
