Mile #46 Dylan
Dylan is a happy, smart and silly four year old and twin brother to Tyler. He always has a smile on his face and is one of the sweetest boys you’ll ever meet. Dylan has always been a thinker, and likes to take his toys apart to "see how they work". This is where the nickname Dylan The Destroyer comes from.
On January 18, 2017, at just 25 months old, Dylan was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. His team of doctors quickly came up with an aggressive treatment plan, surgically implanted a medical port, and started chemotherapy the very next day. In addition to chemo, he has had numerous admissions to Inova Children's Hospital, ranging from 4 to 10 days. He has undergone several spinal taps with intrathecal chemo, multiple blood transfusions and bone marrow aspirations. His white blood cell count at diagnosis, along with the bone marrow aspiration after his first month of treatment classified him as a Very High Risk patient.
