When Shawn was 6 years old he became very sick. His mom and his doctors didn’t know what was causing his illness. Shawn had a total of 13 stays at the hospital that lasted anywhere from 1 to 29 nights long before he was finally diagnosed with Disseminated PNET Cancer, a type of brain cancer.  Once they had a diagnosis, the team at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia was able to create a treatment plan and to try to cure Shawn.

Today, Shawn is 9 years old and he will tell you that he is going to live to be 102. He likes listening to music on his old radio, one of his favorite songs is “I Won’t Back Down,” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.  Shawn continues his battle against his brain cancer and receives regular care and treatment from CHOP.
