Together for Sebastián

age 8, brain cancer

 

Nothing prepared Sebastián’s family for the day in June 2014 when they learned he had a rare brain tumor called medulloblastoma. “We were devastated,” said his mother, Belén. Sebastián’s doctor sent his family to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for his care.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago.

Sebastián’s treatment at St. Jude included chemotherapy and radiation therapy. When he finished treatment, he celebrated with a No Mo’ Chemo party.
