Sean Semon is a Las Vegas resident who was diagnosed in 2005 with cardiomyopathy after a virus attacked his heart. Finding himself unable to breathe well, doctors ultimately decided the to implant a defibrillator. However, the surgeon operating on him decided that Sean, who was only 28 at the time, was too young for the procedure and instead chose to treat his illness with medications.
But in 2007, after Sean collapsed at work, he finally had the defibrillator implanted to assist his heart. And it is a good thing — in 2010, that defibrillator was needed to restart his heart and save his life. Now, doctors have told Sean a heart transplant is now critical to his survival.
Before he can be added to the transplant waiting list, Sean must raise $150,000 to prove he can pay the out-of-pocket expenses for the procedure. A former semi-pro football player, Sean hopes to receive the lifesaving transplant that will allow him to once again live a healthy, active lifestyle. But your help is needed to ensure Sean and his family receive a second chance at life.
Among Sean’s goals are establishing a nonprofit camp for children with heart problems and helping kids with heart problems once again run and play with others.
