6-year-old Sebastian Estevez suffers from a deadly, genetic disease called Hunter Syndrome. The disease affects every system in the body and incrementally takes away a child’s ability to talk, hear, play, learn, and grow. There is no cure.
He sees numerous specialists to monitor and treat his condition. He’s had 6 surgeries and numerous invasive interventions. In short, much of Sebastian’s life revolves around disease and his family’s fundraising efforts to save Sebastian’s life and other children like him.
Sebastian’s life isn’t all sickness, disability and fundraising. Every Tuesday, Bit by Bit provides Sebastian the opportunity to have fun and also address some of his mobility issues without feeling like he’s at another doctor’s appointment. However, the most important aspect of his improvement is in his self-confidence. Sebastian tends to be very fearful and hesitant to try new things, but riding teaches him to trust himself and others. He loves telling everyone that he knows how to ride horses. It’s truly a source of pride for him.
When he is at Bit by Bit, Sebastian isn’t a sick child. He’s a kid who loves animals. He’s a child who loves the outdoors. He’s a little boy who rides horses. He’s a kid who is brave. He’s a child who is living.
