Sean Marsee was a healthy 18 year old athlete when he was diagnosed with oral cancer after using smokeless tobacco for a relatively short period of time. He won his last track meet only hours before beginning his battle with cancer which included a series of disfiguring surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy, and ended with his death.


Jason Marsee

Sean’s emotional story is told by his youngest brother Jason Marsee who, as a teenager, watched his brother battle cancer and eventually die.  His presentation is intended to discourage young people from starting tobacco use and encourages current users to quit.
