Because it has entered stage four, the doctor said he would only survive for three months. Prediction was missed after chemotherapy that she intended to give a positive development. But as has been paired, Sean was diagnosed with cancer back more fiercely 1.5 years later.
This time Sean was attacked Diesease Askin, malignant cancer growing in her lungs. This disease is very rare, only happening at 3 in the 1 million people. Tumor tissue growth experienced by Sean very quickly, and the amount has reached the size of a golf ball in just four months.

With only one lung functioning, Sean has also successfully climbed the highest peaks in seven continents. This proves that the high spirit can overcome the obstacles of any kind.
