Although Dylan may "look" fairly normal at this point, he is far from that. Dylan has physical & severe mental developmental issues due to the intense treatment (chemo & radiation) he received for the Leukemia when he was an infant, but it took a while to see if Dylan would develop normally or not. We have known for awhile now that he does not operate and behave normally including not being able to communicate past a 2-3 year old level and not able to say many words, as well as being visually impaired with poor vision. Dylan's brain & thought functions are also impaired to the point where it is difficult for him to learn to discern right from wrong much of the time as he will behave in erratic ways which are far from normal and can be disturbing to his surroundings. It's almost like he has autism in some ways, but he doesn't.
Dylan needs and is undergoing long term professional developmental care and therapy which is very expensive and is beyond our family's ability to pay for. In fact, we just learned that he has no teeth coming in at all since he began losing his baby teeth, and he is now 7 years old so he will not be able to have anything done about that (he'll have no teeth to chew with, hard to believe but true) until he is much older past teenage years when possible orthodontia work can be done.
I am asking anyone who appreciates my blog reviews (which I do at my own expense and time) if you would consider donating a small amount towards Dylan's expenses? It would mean so much to me and my family, and we are hopeful that one day we will see some much needed physical, mental, & interactive social improvements, although it is very challenging right now as I mentioned. We are praying that a miracle will occur with Dylan because he is loved by many.
No donation is too small
