Dylan's Story:

At the age of three, Dylan began telling us his head hurt, and every once in a while we noticed that he would grab his head and rest it on the couch.  But Dylan was a strong, full-of-life little boy that never let anything get in the way of doing the things he loved.  So after a few short seconds, he would be right back at it, laughing and making us laugh, so we convinced ourselves it was nothing.

Of course we were worried, and we never ignored the pain.  For four months we took Dylan to the doctor looking for answers and each time we heard the same thing:  "There is fluid behind the eardrum"... followed by a prescripton for an antibiotic to fight the ear infection.

We wanted desperately to believe it was nothing more than that, but our minds found no rest.

Our Mission:

It is the Dylan Earven Foundations mission to provide financial support to the children and the families of our community who are afflicted by childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. We will strive to raise awareness of this devastating disease and serve as a positive impact on our community.
Help Support the Foundation:

Over 40,000 children endure cancer treatment each year. Beyond fighting just the disease, parents who should be focusing on helping their child heal are often fighting overwhelming medical bills as well. The average out-of-pocket cost for a family with a child battling cancer is over $10,000. In addition to the cost of treatment, the hidden costs of food, transportation, and lodging often add to the financial burden. When children are sick, as adults we feel powerless. We wonder, “What can I do to help?” Giving a donation of any amount makes a difference. By donating to The Dylan Earven Foundation, you enable loved ones to provide emotional and financial support to their child battling cancer.

Some people think one person - one donation - can’t make a difference.
But every donation is important and every dollar counts.
Since we are a volunteer based non-profit organization, all funds raised goes directly to support families in our community.
