In late October 2020, Seamus had symptoms of what first seemed like a head cold like his girls had. Everyone in the house felt better in about a week except for Seamus. After countless appointments with specialists, tests, COVID tests, and deteriorating health, Seamus was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in December 2020. In January 2021, he started chemo in an effort to reduce the multiple tumors and make him more comfortable.
There is no treatment or cure for the type of cancer Seamus has. He is doing his best to fight and enjoy the time he has left with his girls – wife, Heather and daughters, Lydia and Gracie. Seamus has been out of work since he first fell ill in October and is unable to return due to the aggressive chemotherapy regimen and advancing cancer symptoms.
While Heather is luckily able to continue to work full time and provide the majority of Seamus’ care, the loss of Seamus’ income is a challenge.
