Sean & Courtney Gelles
Hi there! We are Sean and Courtney Gelles and we have 3 children. We are high school sweethearts who have been together for almost 18 years and married for nearly 11 years.
We've been through a lot together, but the hardest time in our lives was when our 1st child was born 6 weeks early at only 4 lbs 10 oz. He was so little and the doctors were worried he would have a disability, but he was perfect to me.
Until he was 5 months old our son had one side of his rib sticking out. I took him to the doctor and the results were not good. My baby had a tumor in his liver growing grapefruit size. Everything happened so quickly, and my whole life came tumbling down around me.
Our son had a biopsy along with a double-dose of morphine. He died but they were able to bring him back. He had to spend 2 weeks in the ICU.
He started chemo to shrink the tumor and got a resection of 75% of his liver. He is now 14 years cancer free! But one of the chemos left him with hearing aides. We also discovered at 5 years old that he is autistic. Despite all of that, he brings joy to everyone he meets and has come a long way from not talking at all to talking your ear off!
I love our son so much along with our other children. He has a 12-year-old sister and 6 year-old little brother.
My husband and I love camping, swimming and hanging out with family, friends and our 4 dogs.
