Dylan Downes' Leukemia Fund

Please help support our dear friend, Dylan Downes, and his family through this tough time in their lives. In January of 2018, Dylan was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL)-- though it was caught early, chemotherapy will persist for approximately two and a half years. The cost of treatment creates a large financial burden for his parents, especially when already faced with the expenses of sending their triplet sons to college.

 Dylan is a 19-year old student studying civil engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He was born and raised in Lincoln with his two triplet brothers: Liam and Cameron. Though his main interests have always been math and science, Dylan has a great appreciation for the arts, especially painting (one of his favorite pastimes). He has always been extremely caring, kind-hearted, empathetic and supportive to everyone around him. In fact, Dylan has been a member  of Students Together Against Cancer (STAC), a club & non-profit organization in Lincoln, for several years in order to raise money for local cancer patients. Determined to get through his own battle, Dylan is maintaining a positive attitude despite his circumstances.

 His upcoming two and a half year journey will change the lives of him and everyone close to him forever. All of your generosity and prayers are deeply appreciated.
