Sean Shearon was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma at age 12. Six years later, his mother lost a ten-year battle with breast cancer.

In order to honor all of the victims and survivors of cancer, especially breast cancer, Sean walked 452 miles/730 km, an incredible 17.25 marathons in only 18 days through Michigan. He called this event "The Victory Walk". It was a celebration of the second chance at life that he received and served as a light of hope and inspiration for others to achieve their own victory over cancer.

The Victory Walk is still dedicated to raising awareness about breast cancer prevention and money for a cure. 100% of all money donated goes toward breast cancer research and related programs at the Karmanos Cancer Institute, a nationally recognized research facility.

Although Sean took the final step of his great trek through Michigan on August 14, 2008, his fight against cancer does not stop there. He continues the struggle as an educator and activist on behalf of people throughout the world by promoting cancer prevention and helping others to secure access to cancer treatment.
