A message from Amber:

"Antonio and I want to thank each and every one of you for your love and support. It is our mission to find a promising treatment plan to give Devan a fighting chance of recovery. Antonio and I are indebted to you for your generosity and kindness during this dark time for our family. Many of you I have grown up with, cross-fitted with, and served with, and many I haven't had the pleasure of meeting yet. We want to express our extreme gratitude and hope to one day repay the love and support you have given us.

My heart sank when the doctors informed us of Devan's condition. This is a pain I never expected to endure. It is a battle I will not back down from as his Mother it is my duty to protect him and fight for the life that he deserves.

He has always been an amazingly vibrant boy with such joy and animation. His giggles and smiles just light up any room. He has already touched so many with his beautiful heart and character. Your love is a gift. From the bottom of my heart, thank you."

I get more emotional every time I check this page. The outpouring of love and support from people Amber and Dev know and some they have never and will never meet, is such a beautiful thing. This family is truly loved. Many thanks again for your generosity, almost $10k in 2 days- blowing my mind!!!

God Bless this family- lets all do our part to make sure that Devan gets world class care and has the best possible chance at making a full recovery through this battle he is fighting. The tumor is called a diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma commonly referred DIPG

"It is a with a heavy heart I have to relay this information, this morning Devan began having issues regulating his pupil size and them being uneven.. We just met with the neuro surgeon and are now being told surgery is no longer his best option.. The doctors here and their colleagues from around the state have been debating Devan's diagnosis and have concluded that; given the fast onset of his symptoms, the progression of the symptoms since being admitted, as well as now the involvement of more of his cranial nerves controlling the eye muscles, that this is in fact a rare and aggressive cancer with no known cure and is terminal for patients diagnosed with it."

Antonio's mom hired me her first year as principal in San Rafael... I saw her today and was so saddened to hear about what Devan and his parents are going through. Your beautiful, sweet boy and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Much love to you all.
