Donate to Help Dylan
Dylan, LHL's 22nd sponsor recipient, was diagnosed with high-risk statge 4 Neuroblastoma in April 2016. At the age of 4, Dylan began a protocol of 6 cycles of chemo, 2 stem cell transplants, radiation and 6 cycles of immunotherapy. Despite completing these treatments, Dylan, now 6, still has a 50% chance of relapse with limited treatments for a cure. Transferring hospitals in hopes of undergoing trial treatments to prevent the return of his cancer, Dylan still faces years of treatments and a lifetime of follow ups. Despite these challenges, Dylan's spirits are strong and dynamic.

Donate to Help Zoey
Zoey is a sweet 10-yr old who was diagnosed in February 2018 with a rare type of malignant tumor called Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma. This type of sarcoma cancer involves the soft tissue, including striated muscle tissue. Zoey had surgery to remove the mass on her leg and luckily the cancer did not spread but she undergoes weekly treatment for precautionary reasons. Treatment and recovery has been tough for Zoey and by week 3 her hair started falling out. Zoey is still in a leg brace making mobilization difficult for her and as time goes by her spirits continue to drop due to the physical and emotional strain of treatment. Even through all of that, her family is pulling through. They are confident this will pass and Zoey will get better and continue to shine and be their little superstar

Donate to Help Avery
In 2013, at age three, Avery was first diagnosed with Wilms tumor. However, after an hour and a half of what would have been a five-hour surgery, doctors informed Avery’s mom that her daughter had stage 4 neuroblastoma.  Over five months, Avery endured many hospital stays, fever, sour belly, shots, allergic reactions, blood draws, blood and platelet transfusions, Broviac dressing changes, daily cleanings/flushes of her port, medications, five rounds of chemotherapy, stem-cell retrieval. and surgery which removed about 90-95 percent of her cancer. However, she later learned that she had cancer in her skull, entire spine, shoulder blades, upper arms, full pelvis, thighs, and her bone marrow.  After this, Avery received MIBG therapy, full-body IV radiation, a stem cell rescue and three different types of chemotherapy. Now she is considered NED, no evidence of disease; and despite all she has gone through, Avery is an amazing, loving, and giving child, who was known as the Sticker-and-Toy Girl on her hospital floor, giving out stickers to everyone and her own brand new toys to other children.
