When Dylan was 6 years old he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL; a cancer of the blood). From then he spent a lot of the time in a hospital under going chemotherapy treatment for the next 2.5 years.
This puts enormous strain on a body, basically wiping out any fast growing cells including bone marrow and digestive system (and hair cells). In hope that the chemo will wipe out the cancer in the process.
From then on if the treatment has been successful Dylan was still considered in remission for the following 6 years where he had to go for weekly blood tests, monthly check ups and constant monitoring.
Then around his 13th birthday he was given the “All Clear”! So he had a party 😀
All throughout this time Starlight and Camp Quality helped him through the experience actually making it enjoyable and fun. In the words of Camp Quality, laughter truly is the best medicine!
