Sean Shearon raises awareness and donations for breast cancer research/programs

DETROIT, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Sean Shearon wanted to make a difference and do his part to end cancer, as well as honor the victims and survivors of this horrific disease. He set a goal of walking 18 marathons in 18 days -- The Victory Walk -- to raise awareness and dollars for breast cancer research and programs at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, in Detroit. He began his journey in Sault Saint Marie, Michigan, on July 27 and will conclude his Victory Walk Thursday, Aug. 14, at approximately 6 p.m., at Campus Martius, in Detroit.

Shearon, age 43, is a resident of Windsor, Ontario, and teaches at the Roberto Clemente Learning Academy in southwest Detroit. Shearon's mom Bette was originally from Michigan and worked many years at the J.L. Hudson's Company in downtown Detroit. Shearon saw his mom battle breast cancer and he himself was only 12 years old when he was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a cancer that formed in the soft tissue and muscle of his shoulder. He underwent extensive chemotherapy and radiation treatments. In 1984, his mother lost her battle with breast cancer.

"I can't stand by and watch more people go through what my mother and I went through," said Shearon. "I'm walking to make a statement and to show that it's not beyond us to do all that we can to raise awareness and funds for a cure. I challenge everyone in Michigan and elsewhere to join me in support of cancer research so we can help end this despicable disease."

Shearon was hoping to raise at least $1 from everyone in Michigan. To date, approximately $3,200 has been raised in online donations.
