My son Dillon that the non profit is named after lost his fight with cancer. Please honor my son's life and legacy by supporting his foundation "Dillon's Dream A World Without Cancer" as we will continue to advocate for more research for childhood cancer treatment. 100,000 children lose their fight each year.
I had cancer for about 10 months while in high school and during the pandemic. Imagine being a teenager and thinking your life is going to be cut short. Most teenagers think about dating or what career they want after high school; this was not me. And there is a pandemic. Covid19 has currently taken over 212,000 lives and has no foreseeable cure. I was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma halfway through my junior year in high school. It is a very rare type of cancerous tumor that grows in your bones or the soft tissue around your bones, such as cartilage or the nerves.
In a sense, the pandemic helped me overcome my cancer. This forced me to be patient with my disease. I did not feel left out, so I was not in a rush to get better; I could take my time to recover. There were no parties because everyone was stuck at home. The pandemic also made me feel less alone since my family was with me at home. They gave me a lot of support. My family brought me food and help me remember my medication. This allowed me to focus on recovery. I saw my cancer as another chapter in my life.
Stay tuned for the next Dillon's Dream meeting, early September, date tbd
