Being first diagnosed at the young age of 13 with Hodgkin’s disease and then later finding out that he had Askin’s Sarcoma too, is indeed more tragic new than anyone is expected to bear. However Sean had made up his mind not to let the diseases dictate his life and destiny from a very early stage.
The documented fact that he was the only person in the world to have both diseases at the same time did not in any way deter his determination to beat both conditions and get on with living his life.
He survived both deadly conditions with only one fully functioning lung. The other lung had to be removed because of the huge tumor that was detected due to the Askin’s disease diagnosis.
He has since been featured on many media platforms to help promote awareness of cancer and as a testimony to the possibility of beating the disease.
Beside this Sean has also established his own foundation called the Cancer Climber Association which promotes cancer awareness and helps to raise funds for cancer research.
In his book titled Keep Climbing, he recounts the varies stages of the struggle and journey from the very depths of his near death points to his eventual victory, his experiences at the peaks and his desire to stay at the top of the world.
This is evident in his ability to complete the Ford Ironman World Championship in October 2008.
Staying positive and motivated throughout the fight to stay healthy perhaps contributed to the phenomenal success rate he had in not only beating the disease but keeping it at bay.
