Dear sweet family of Dylan, I'm so sorry it took me so long to thank you for your thoughtful and generous gift to our daughter Elianna Neumann as she fought a horrific battle against meningoencephilitis. Its been hard but every day gets a tad easier. Your sons story truly touched my heart and I believe in my heart children like your son watch over my daughter. ♥♥♥

HI Sabrina, you had a beautiful little boy! We lost our son to bacterial meningitis 3 weeks ago and we were told to check out your website and it is truly amazing what you have accomplished!  


Darla Gambill said: January 10th, 2011 5:32 pm

Dylan is so missed..... Sabrina you have done such a great job bring awareness and helping to see not one more family has to go through this. You and Marcus are so strong. I miss the both of you and hope to see you soon. I pray for you all daily and miss Dylan all the time. There are two blue eyed babies looking down on us all the time..... Much love, Darla (Brooklynne's momma) 


Leslie Rush said: November 13th, 2010 4:30 pm

Thank you for your efforts. My 13 year old son Wesley had Meningitis when he was 17 months old. He was fortunate. He has unilateral hearing loss, but is a happy healthy young man. He is in school with another young boy who recently lost most of his hearing to Meningitis overnight. The list goes on. Many kids who survived and have hearing loss. Many more who were less fortunate. Thank you for all you are doing to raise money and awareness. I beautiful tribute to your beautiful son.


Becky Baruck said: November 2nd, 2010 2:03 pm

My family has also been touched by this terrible illness. My 11 week old son was diagnosed with pneumococcal meningitis in March of this year and nearly died. Although my son did survive, we live everyday with the after effects of pneumococcal meningitis. I have been searching the web for information and have found little here in the states. Your son's story is heartbreaking, but this site is a wonderful tribute to him. I hope that the information you provide and money you raise will help save lives. 


nilda diones said: August 15th, 2010 10:49 pm

Marcus, Sabrina & Ryan - Our family thinks of you every day. We are truly grateful for the positive ways you have chosen to deal with the tremendous loss you are suffering. We know that your efforts to raise awareness & money for research will some day spare another family from losing their little boy (or girl). Your time with Dylan here was not long enough, but you will be with him again in Heaven & he will know how much you love him. 


The Gallegos Family said: April 29th, 2010 5:24 pm
