Dylan's fight to stay cancer free

I recently learned I’m a carrier of a rare gene mutation, which causes Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer (HDGC). HDGC is rare, and very dangerous. In most males my age, the gene mutation is already creating cancer in my stomach that is undetectable until it’s too late for curable treatment. With my new diagnosis, I have an 80%+ chance of developing stomach cancer.


Pursuant to expert advice, I decided to eliminate the chance of dying from stomach cancer by having my stomach completely removed. I’ll be traveling to NYC to have a prophylactic total gastrectomy (total removal of the stomach) early January. My life and diet will forever change, but I’m thankful I have the opportunity to address this now, while I’m still alive.


I’m blessed to be able to receive treatment from arguably the best surgeon and facility for this procedure. However, it will be expensive.  Many friends and members of my church family have already contributed and are now supporting me through the creation of a Go Fund Me account to help with the expenses (flight, hotel, medical bills, and other recovery related costs).  It would greatly bless my family and me if you could give toward this campaign. Thank you!
