My Rare Tumor Community
My goal with "Rare Tumor" community (diagnosis: low grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasm) is to educate people through my experiences, challenges, and recovery from a tumor diagnosis in my cecum and appendix during a colonoscopy procedure. Interesting moments here in the hospital at Mt. Sinai that I'll look to capture include review of family history, treatment, pain management, recovery path, receiving the diagnosis, taking the prognosis home, and my feelings and concerns all along the way. You'll note from my photo that I also intend on adding as much comedy and creativity as possible. To me that's a staple in any community on or offline.

    Birds can always find somewhere to go; not always true for us humans. The water, although rough, can always get rougher. It's up to us as individuals to do whatever it takes to make it a smoother, more comfortable ride.

Sean's Medical Journal Entry IV - Blood Tests

About this video:

Bedside Equipmemt + Blood Tests : In this
very short "selfV" (video) clip (part II of II) shot in the middle of
the night only 7 hours after my surgery I ask my other night nurse (who was
also extraordinary through out some of the toughest nights) to explain the
medical diagnostic equipment and the blood tests I'm prescribed to give my
attending physicians the information they need throughout my week in the
hospital. These tests proved to be critical during my stay in communicating my
recovery during my hospital stay at Mount Sinai, Upper East Side, New York,
