At six years old in the summer of 2017, Seth was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia called Ph+ ALL. This stands for Philadelphia Chromosome Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). This is a rare subtype of leukemia that only 5% of children with ALL have.
Seth is being treated at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The chemo gave him fevers, nausea, and fatigue and so much more including multiple stays in the PICU. Seth touched death’s door numerous times and was in the hospital for months at a time. In November 2017 he was able to go home but continues to be in and out of the hospital due to chemo treatments and their effects. He and his family have a long road ahead.
