Please help support Dylan's parents to stay with him while he is recovering from an infection post amputation
After many years of pain, suffering and neverending trips to Shriner's Hospital since he was born for adjustments on his leg, Dylan recently had his leg amputated. All involved hoped that this would be the end to his long many-years of suffering. However, following the amputation, Dylan's nub (point of amputation) became infected and landed him back at Shriner's Hospital in Springfield, Massachusetts. While Dylan's family is hopeful that the team at Shriner's can cure the infection that has developed, he must be closely monitored. Should the nub not heal, further amputation may be necessary. He is on a constant antibiotic drip and had to be fitted for a PICC line to his heart. This is to ensure that should the infection spread immediate action can be taken.
As I'm sure you can imagine, all of this is a challenge in many ways. Both his Mom (Kayla) and his Dad (Jake) are taking turns caring for him in Springfield and leaving behind their jobs and paychecks. Given the unexpected extended stay, funds have long been exhausted and bills continue to pile up. Dylan's mom and dad need your support so that they can focus on and attend to what matters most, Dylan's health and well-being. Dylan needs his parents by his side so that he may heal more quickly. Financial assistance is needed to help with lost wages, travel from Maine to Massachusetts, meals while at the hospital, rent money to keep their home in Maine, groceries, household bills, medical supplies and bandages, and more.
Anyone who knows Dylan will tell you that...even through all of his challenges...
-he remains quick to make a joke and eager to make others smile ..naming his nub "Bob" and ordering piles of Jello from the cafeteria
-he remains strong and steadfast and is proving to be a life teacher to many beyond his years at his young age of 12
Please help Dylan smile and heal. Please contribute. We can all do our part.
Let's Help Dylan get back to the things he loves like mountain biking, snowboarding, playing baseball, fishing, kayaking and swimming!
Please support Dylan's family to be by his side! He's had such a long and hard road for a 12 year old boy. Thank you. Your support is so appreciated!!
