Sean has a triplication in his first chromosome and, as far as we have been able to find, is the only one in the world with a triplication in his specific region. Sean has an atrial septal defect, small head size, deformed ear drums and space behind the ear drums, chronic ear and sinus infections, and is globally developmentally delayed. We do not fully know the extent the chromosome abnormality will affect him as he gets older.
Sean is a loving caring 4 year old child who, so far, does not realize he is any different than any of his peers at school. In January, Sean went on a Make-A-Wish trip to Disneyworld and had the time of his life visiting Mickey Mouse and staying at Give Kids the World.
