This was written by Dylan's Dad...
My son Dylan is 19 years old, he just had a birthday on July 1st, he is my oldest son out of 7 kids.
One week ago my nightmare started unexpectedly, so fast and furious! Dylan was seen at an Urgent Care for a lump on his neck that was causing him pain. On July 7th he was diagnosed with suspected leukemia.
Blood test results the following day confirmed and diagnosed Dylan with Acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma Cancer.
Its funny how our lives can change so quickly! Dylan was feeling fine before and after his birthday! He was working hard at his current job, enjoying life as Dylan knew it!
"Bam", talk about getting slapped in the face with troubling news like this regarding your child.
Dylan is currently receiveing aggressive treatment at MD Anderson Cancer hospital in Houston, Texas.
I assured Dylan, "We are going to fight this battle together because I will be here for you and you will never be alone! Any parent, would indeed, feel the same way I do. I would do anything to fight this battle for my son."
I am amazed how strong Dylan has handled this whole process! He has become the strong man I knew he would become. I still see him as my baby boy and "we" will fight this!
We appreciate all of the love, prayers and support we have received already from family and friends during this difficult transition in our life.
We are blessed beyond belief and will not let go of our faith in God for a complete healing for Dylan!!!
....Thank You for your needed prayers!!
I sit here and cry for this 19 yr old that I Love and am Praying so hard For things to turn around. ....I also am crying for my husband who is up there all alone God PLEASE hear my prayers!!!!
