Dylan, the 6 year old brother of one of the girls has been diagnosed with Adrenoleukodystrophy and is in need of a bone marrow transplant. Fortunately, they found a donor match, but the special treatment that is to be administered out of state is still going to cost the family a lot of money. They have set up an account to help with those bills through the Children's Organ Transplant Association and we are trying to raise funds to cover the expenses. If you are able to donate, please go to the button on the right margin of this page to do so.
If you are not able to donate, please assist us in praying. There is also a local bone marrow registry and blood drive set up on Dylan's behalf. If you can attend that, please do. If you are not local, please donate blood in your own community and participate in the bone marrow registry as you could save numerous lives. Bloggers, feel free to put this advertisement for fundraising on your blog too, together we can save Dylan's life.
HOW CAN YOU HELP SOMEONE LIKE DYLAN?
Like many 6-year-old boys Dylan loves playing soccer and baseball. He also enjoys school and even spent an entire summer reviewing math flashcards for fun. When he began having trouble in school his parents thought he may be having difficulty hearing, so they took him to the doctor.
An MRI revealed that Dylan suffered from a rare genetic disorder called Adrenoleukodystrophy and his best shot at a cure is to have a bone marrow transplant.
You can help other patient’s just like Dylan by joining the National Bone Marrow Registry and getting on the Big Red Bus on January 27th at Lockmar Elementary School.
