Steven Sudell (nicknamed Weev by his family) is 14 years old and was diagnosed with a rare cancerous brain tumor in April, 2017. He went through proton beam therapy and chemotherapy during the summer of 2017 to treat the cancer. Following his treatments, he went for weekly blood and platelet transfusions while being homeschooled to keep up with his classmates in 8th grade. After some time, Steven was able to return to school and was happy to be back with his classmates.
In February, 2018, Steven was well enough to travel so he and his family went on a vacation sponsored by Make-A-Wish to the Bahamas. About a month after their trip, Steven wasn’t feeling well. Tests showed that the cancer had returned and this time there were additional tumors in his spine. Steven underwent more surgery and immediately following, began another round of radiation. Despite valiant efforts, the treatments were unsuccessful. Steven’s cancer is terminal and he is home on hospice care. He is living the best life he can with his family and close friends in the time they have left. He has a constant smile on his face and has always had a giving heart. His inner strength has touched the lives of his caregivers and other young patients facing similar circumstances after just one meeting. He is an inspiration and everyone who meets him can feel his sense of peace and calm.
Steven is a big Cincinnati Bengals fan and loves the Food Network, especially the Pioneer Woman. Steven is an old soul and his favorite movie is Guardians of The Galaxy with all of its 70’s and 80’s music. He’s a retro kinda guy which is what gave him the inspiration for his retro themed socks. Together with his cousin, Steven designed socks that represent the Warrior that he is in a whimsical way that also represents that retro style that he likes. Steven’s hope is to give back to an organization called The Sunshine Kids. They provide positive group activities to young cancer patients free of charge and are dedicated to helping children with cancer smile. It’s so important for kids facing serious illness to have moments where they can just be a kid and Steven has personally benefited from their services along with other young cancer warriors. Steven hopes everyone who wears his socks will do so with a smile.
