Baby boy loses fight against rare cancer

PHOENIX – Sebastian Aguilar lost his battle with a rare cancer Friday. Sebastian was surrounded by his family.

Sebastian was just over 2 years old. 12 News covered his fight with the ugly disease in February.

Sebastian was receiving chemotherapy and bone marrow transplants.

Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) is a rare form of cancer which, if untreated, could be fatal within a few months. Even with chemotherapy, his chances of survival were slim.

His mother, Candy, realized something was wrong when her happy, dancing baby stopped dancing.
