My Story

Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure. Dylan's journey started in December of 2018 when we found a lump on his neck. In January of 2019 they removed his tonsils and told us everything was fine he had an infected tonsil. He still had a lump and developed a second lump finally in July of 2019 we got to the right doctors after months of fighting to see what was wrong. He had surgery to remove the mass that was growing. Within a week they told us he had Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma. 7 months after everything started we found out he had cancer and it started in his tonsils. After a lot of testing he started chemo. That was a long journey with 5 different chemo meds and steriods. Dylan rang the bell November 21st, 2019. He is currently 2 years and 7 months in remission.
