A fundraiser pageant will be held in June to benefit a young cancer patient who is in the trenches battling the disease…Sean Powell.

Sean is a 10-year-old little boy with Medulloblastoma. He went for an eye appointment and as the doctor looked into his eyes, he saw a spot on his brain. On February 10, 2012 he was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma. It was operated on on February 16, 2012.

In March of 2012, Sean contracted Meningitis and had to have a shunt placement. That shunt went bad and he had to have another brain surgery to have a magnetic shunt put in. He went through 45 days of radiation and he has done 6 out of 9 rounds of chemotherapy.

He is now wheelchair-bound and cannot walk. He lives with his grandmother, Lisa, and his twin sister Skye.

This is his journey and your support is appreciated. Sean is looking to receive 6-8 more weeks of physical therapy, and a pageant is being hosted to help raise funds for him.
