Meet Our Angel

2018/2019 Scot's Angel

Dylan
 

This year’s Scot’s Angel is a 9 year old third grader at West Powellhurst elementary school.   Our Angel for 2019 is kind, bright, generous young man named Dylan Barrera. Dylan found out he had a lump right in his brain stem. The next day he got an MRI and found out it was a tumor of the worst type. It’s name is Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). It is located on his brain stem which controls his breathing, heart rate and the nerves and muscles that help us see, hear, walk, talk and eat. It has impacted him so much already. But he still manages to smile when he can.  Help us support Dylan and his family in this difficult time.
