Three years ago, KPMG's Kevin Sheehan was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. This is his story.
“How can this be possible? I am at the top of my game. I am only 46 years old. I am not supposed to have cancer.”
Three years ago, Kevin Sheehan, a KPMG partner based in Atlanta, was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. Cancer was not part of his vocabulary. In fact, he says that he was never sick a day in his life.
Just 20 percent of patients with Sheehan's diagnosis are alive after three years. Kevin continues to fight and is not giving up.
As the KPMG national partner champion for the American Cancer Society, Sheehan is proud to lead a network that supports activites across the firm to help the society. He believes that because of the awareness, funding and research the supports, a cure is imminent.
