#ChildhoodCancerAwarenessMonth
At this year's Red, White & Blue Party we had the privilege to honor Sean Sweeney with this year's Hero of Hope Award. 

In November of 2017 Sean was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a life threatening form of cancer. In the last few years he has received multiple rounds of chemotherapy, countless spinal taps, bone marrow biopsies, and blood infusions. 

As of March 2020, Sean is no longer undergoing cancer treatments.
