When Shawn was born, it was discovered that his intestine was ruptured. Unfortunately, this was only the beginning of many more obstacles with his health. He’s undergone 2 hernia surgeries, 3 abdominal surgeries, as well as 6 surgeries for sinus polyps. Shawn has cystic fibrosis, an inherited disorder that causes severe damage to the lungs, digestive system and other organs in the body. Shawn’s days are not carefree like most other kids. He must take 14 medications in the morning, 7 during the day, 14 at night, and a daily breathing treatment. He also receives a hormone shot to help with his growth.
Shawn’s favorite pastime is sports, and aspires to be a telecaster so that he could watch ESPN all the time. He especially loves basketball and watching his favorite player Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
