Two years ago, they welcomed sweet Dylan into the world. Dylan was perfectly healthy and such a happy baby.
In October 2009 (when he was 10 months old), Dylan caught a common virus, but for unknown reasons, it attacked his brain stem. Since then, Dylan has been on life support. He is not able to blink, show facial expressions, speak, or eat without a feeding tube. I can't even begin to imagine what James and Lauren have gone through over the past year.
Through the foundation, they are hoping to support research and clinical trials to help children with brain injuries. Their hope is to increase awareness for acquired neurological injuries in children and draw attention to the lack of known methods for repairing damaged areas of the brain.
