Dylan is the happiest kid we know! He LOVES legos and building. He has a twin brother and a younger one that do everything together. He’s become a super swimmer this year and is basically a pretty typical 6 year old boy interest and activity wise.
His resilience to all of this has been incredible to witness. On August 20th, 2014, Dylan was diagnosed with Leukemia. In the following days we were told that he specifically had pre-B cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia(ALL). He spent the following 8 months in intense frontline treatment, which consisted of multiple blood transfusions and many types of chemo given orally, intravenously, and intrathecally. At the end of April 2015, he started the maintenance phase of his treatment. This has consisted of 12 week cycles of chemotherapy, some given daily, weekly, monthly, and once a cycle. Dylan will take his last dose of chemo on the night of October 24, 2017 and we are VERY excited for that day.
There have been many bumps along the road so far, but many more good times than bad. We have had an unbelievable amount of support from family, friends, teachers, and co-workers since that horrible day in August 2014, and will be forever grateful.
