From his mother Tracy: “Dylan, a 7 year old boy, who loves to draw, play with legos, Power Rangers and a big fan of Ben 10 was diagnosed with Stage 4 Undifferntiated Sarcoma with Ewings-like symptons November 6, 2012. What started out as symptons of growing pains to thinking his hip was out of place turned out to be a large tumor on his hip.
Dylan has shown to be a true fighter and tends to give those helping him to make him better a run for their money, his stubborness, we believe is what seems to be helping him in beating this monster. He continues to make progress and the tumor has shrunk and the three spots on his lungs are almost completely gone. Surgery will come towards the end of May and with a little luck, we are hopeful Dylan could be in remission by late this summer.
Dylan enjoys spending time with his older sister and going to her sporting events, playing with his younger brother, and hanging out and joking around with his dad. Dylan is our hero and his determination to stand up to cancer and to put up such a fight that he will not allow it to beat him.
Miles2Give…we cannot thank you enough for the dedication you have shown in helping those affected by Sarcoma. You are all truly beautiful people and angels in disguise here on earth.”
From his friend Therese Grady: “Nate Harris recently passed away on March 21, 2013 after a tough 2.5 year battle with Ewings Sarcoma at the age of 23. His strength throughout his diagnosis is nothing short of remarkable. He was first diagnosed the day before our junior year of college at Marquette University.
The tumors originated in his pelvis and metastasized to his humerus, skull, sternum, ribs and spine. He underwent numerous surgeries and traveled to many hospitals for
different types of chemo/ radiation. Nate was the most carefree, fun-loving guy I ever met. He was dealt a rough hand of cards in life, but the way he lived his life one would think he had the best hand on the table. He always had a smile on his face and good song in his heart. He was extremely athletic- played football, basketball and track in high school. We loved biking and hiking together. He enjoyed beautiful music (especially Phish and the Grateful Dead), always surrounded himself with great friends, and loved his family above everything else. Thanks for running for everyone who is going through treatments! My heart goes out to the individuals in every story you guys share on the facebook page. Much love!”
