11-year-old dies after battle with sepsis

Sean Harden died of sepsis on October 28.  He was 11 years old.  Praying for his family.

At the end of September, April Harden believed that her 11-year-old son had complications due to sickle cell anemia, but when his health declined quickly, he had to be placed into a medically induced coma at the Albany Medical Center.

His infection has come out of nowhere.
Lab tests showed that he had sepsis, a potentially life-threatening disease that happens when chemicals that are released into the bloodstream to fight infection cause inflammation.

“I just want to hear that my son is going to make it,” April told News10.

Sean, who his mother said was a “warrior,” had a number of surgeries to fight the often deadly infection.

As her son kept on fighting the infection, April prayed.

“I do believe in miracles. I witnessed one with the Woodward family; we all did. I just need people to be praying. Praying, praying, praying,” she said.

Josh Woodward is a firefighter who was diagnosed with sepsis in the past, was given a very low chance of survival, and somehow lived. Woodward and his wife, Chelsea, made a visit to Sean and April in the hospital and gave April hope.

“Just seeing him, and his wife, and the battle that they won,” April said. “I’m all for it. I already feel like I’ve won a battle just from meeting them.”

Unfortunately, Sean did not make it. He passed away early Monday morning, according to a post shared by Chelsea.

“Sean passed early this morning,” she wrote. “I’m shattered for his family but not for him, he is at peace and no longer in pain.”
