A weekend visit to the Emergency Room to alleviate Danny’s sporadic vomiting and terrible headaches resulted in news no parent wishes to hear – there was an abnormal mass on Danny’s brain that could be seen on the CT scan.
Transported to Boston Children’s Hospital, Danny immediately underwent surgery for hydrocephalus, swelling of the brain caused by what is now known to be Pineoblastoma, an aggressive and cancerous brain tumor.
A miracle since his birth, during which his twin brother, Joseph, passed, Danny is his family’s pride, joy, and heart.
A lover of Thomas the Tank Engine, Cars the Movie, Caillou, creating mischief, snuggling with Mommy, and The Patriots (Dadda’s favorite team), Danny’s immediate future holds for him an extensive surgery to attempt to remove the tumor from his brain and radiation and chemotherapy treatments.
No child should have to go through these trials and no family should have to see their child suffer. We keep Danny and the entire Sheehan and Shaw families in our thoughts and prayers.
Please help us raise the necessary funds to off-set the medical costs of Danny's care. Let’s give Danny his own miracle.
