April 16, 2008: Life savers
To The Editor:
I‚Äôd like to say thanks to everyone that supported my son. Those of you who have met him know how special and full of life he is just by looking into his big brown eyes.¬†
A very big thanks to everyone who has contributed to helping Dylan get his treatment! Whether it was food for his benefit dinner, helping organize, helping serve or just being at the benefit, you will always have a special place in Dylan‚Äôs heart as well as ours!¬†
Our family can never express the thanks and gratitude you all deserve for stopping to help Dylan. Whether the donation was big or small, everyone has helped us save his life, and as his mother I can‚Äôt ever thank you enough for helping to give us that chance.¬†
A special thanks to my two great friends, Heidi and Lisa for being by my side through all of the ups and downs. And, Heidi, ¬†you will never know how much you truly are a hero for literally helping save his life five months ago. (You are Dylan‚Äôs angel!)¬†
Last, but certainly not least, a big thank you to Dylan‚Äôs grandparents, Rich and Doreen Maurer and Judy and Fred Utter. Our parents have helped us in more ways than they‚Äôll ever know. ¬†We love you!
Fred, Erica, Dylan and Caylin Utter,¬†Roxbury
