Dylan's Race for Research
Our nephew Dylan Berio
In 2011 our nephew Dylan Berio was diagnosed with Pilocytic Astrocytoma at the age of 3. Dylan's journey with Brain cancer has lead him through two surgeries and multiple rounds of chemo therapy. Currently Dylan has lost 50% of his vision but his tumors are stable.
We know that Cancer touches the lives of many families and the need for fundraising is immense but for our family this specific cause is a very personal one. Having to watch our nephew deal with the effects of the cancer & treatments for more than half of his life without the hope of a permanent cure has been a tough pill to swallow although Dylan remains happy & active despite his many trials.
We have decided to join forces with the Dana Farber Institute through the "Run any Race" program to raise money for their Pediatric Brain Tumor Research Fund. Stacy will be running in the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC this fall in honor of Dylan and in hopes of contributing to the search for a cure. Myself & our two boys will be there cheering her on.
Our goal is to raise a minimum of
$5,000 for the cause.
We will be matching 100% of donations up to $3,000 and are reaching out for your help.
