Cancer-Free Teen Takes Victory Run Up Famous "Rocky" Steps
Rocky Balboa himself would be extremely impressed by this 8th grader. 13-year-old Sean Bartolucci came to Philadelphia Museum of Art for a very special reason.
Sean was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. After 18 months of treatment including five rounds of chemotherapy, 20 rounds of radiation, and a stem cell transplant he is cancer free! He told himself after he beat cancer he was going to run up the famous steps like Rocky himself... just like in the movies!
Sean was surrounded by family and friends as he took his victory run 2 steps at a time. It was such a special moment!
"It's been tough but believe it or not he's the one who got us through it as much as we got him through it. And I tell everyone when I grow up I want to be half as strong as him, hopefully," said Chris Bartolucci, father.
