Seth Lane is a 5-year-old boy in England who suffers from severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), which makes him easily susceptible to germs. As a result, Seth has been living in a sterile hospital room for most of his life.
His first bone marrow transplant was unsuccessful, forcing him to live in a plastic "bubble" for two years.

He received a warm and loving response from social media.
