Sean is a Cancer Information Specialist (CIS) certified by the National Cancer Institute, the United States government’s lead research organization on cancer. During the ten years that he worked for the Cancer Information Service - the voice of the National Cancer Institute - Sean handled an estimated 20,000 calls from cancer patients, family members and health professionals. A Cancer Information Specialist is a health educator who focuses on cancer only. As a CIS he answered questions about all types of cancer including questions on cancer treatment, prevention, diagnosis, genetics and the latest clinical trials.

Sean knows how difficult it is to be a round-the-clock caregiver and how hard it can be to deal with the emotional and financial aspects of a cancer diagnosis in the family.
