It is both heart wrenching and painful as these children are fully aware of their decline often until their last day.”

Dylan's fight with cancer - DIPG -->We are sharing in your sorrow and hoping you will find comfort in the wonderful memories you shared with Dylan.

“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you.” A.A. Milne - Winnie the Pooh
