    Relationship Status: in a serious relationship with Rachel

    While his girlfriend Rachel is busy getting ready for her job running a tech startup and painting canvases that hang in galleries around the country, Sean can regularly be found casually waiting with his daughters at the bus stop while wearing ridiculous costumes. This isn't Sean's only manner of entertaining--and humiliating--his kids; he'll look for any way to make an ordinary situation into a laugh. However, this playful family's life wasn't always so fun...
    In 2003, at only 29 years old, Sean Kent was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. Initial treatments eliminated the cancer, but it returned with a vengeance just months later. The doctors at City of Hope Hospital had to operate quickly, performing a bone marrow transplant that narrowly saved his life, though the outlook remained grim. Sean was told he had a 50/50 chance to live out the year.

    It is now 2013, a decade later, and Sean's cancer is in full remission. In 2007, he moved in with the love of his life, Rachel, and her two young daughters, Arwen and Joopsy. Since then, it's been six wild years of parenting and mentoring, building and bandaging, teaching and learning, protecting and providing, listening, laughing, and loving. And wearing costumes.
