Sean was born with Congenital Heart Disease (multi-branch pulmonary artery stenosis) and low blood sugar levels. Shortly after his birth, he also developed acid reflux disorder, asthma, bronchitis, and allergies. When Sean started school, his mother noticed that he was having difficulties. Testing showed a learning disability for comprehension and processing. On top of all this, Sean also developed anxiety and depression following two heart surgeries last year, which left him with an aneurism in his chest.
Sean’s mother worries about her son’s health and the fact that he is bullied; however, she is inspired by Sean’s strength and remains positive. “The most amazing thing about all that has happened is that Sean is here, and he has never given up. He is a true fighter and I love him with all my heart and soul.”
