2019 Beneficiary – Sawyer Jane Barrow

The Charles Seller Foundation is thrilled to announce that our 2019 Beneficiary is Sawyer Jane Barrow of Bloomfield, NJ!

Sawyer is a 9-month-old who was born with a Vein of Galen Aneurysmal Malformation, or VGAM. VGAM affects the large veins that returns blood from the brain to the heart. Sawyer’s VGAM was diagnosed in-utero via an ultrasound, and was deemed very serious. She was born at 35 weeks and spent the first month of her life in the NICU at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. She has since been treated at Boston Children’s Hospital, and is currently stable.

Sawyers parents, Keith Barrow and Natalie Rodriguez, are both Bloomfield natives. Keith graduated from Bloomfield High School in 2012, and the Barrow family has lived in Bloomfield for more than 70 years.

The Charles Seller Foundation is so excited to work with Sawyer and her family this year!

Meet our 2018 Beneficiary, Andy!


The Charles Seller Foundation/ Talent Time Players is pleased to announce that this year’s beneficiary is Andy Bustamante from Kearny, NJ. Andy is 10 years old and has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a genetic disorder that weakens the muscles over time. It is typically common in boys and can begin to show symptoms in early childhood. Currently, there is no cure for DMD.

Yet, this doesn’t stop Andy from enjoying life! He loves to watch TV and play video games. He also enjoys playing with his brother Paul and going to the town pool. On Sundays, Andy enjoys attending church with his family. He and his dog Tobi love to go to the park and play there.

The Charles Seller Foundation is incredibly excited to help Andy and his family this summer. We look forward to putting on a show that will make Andy and his family proud of what we do. We cannot wait to get the summer underway! Please stayed tuned for this year’s show announcement and audition dates as those will be coming very soon!
