Dylan Beach was only 2 years old when he began to battle cancer. After removable of the cancerous brain tumor, he endured six months of intensive chemotherapy and stem cell rescue/transplant, spending weeks at a time at Schneider Children Hospital in New Hyde Park. Dylan was in remission for nearly three years when a routine scan in March 2012 revealed a recurrent tumor. He had surgery and was back to kindergarten just one week later.
After staying in remission for another nineteen months, the tumor returned in November 2013. The tumor was removed but the recurrence has necessitated additional treatment. He continues to be closely monitored by neurosurgery and pediatric oncology at Cohen Children's Medical Center while undergoing proton beam radiation at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Dylan is a 7 1/2 year old second grader attending St. James Elementary school. He lives in St. James with his parents Amy and Brian, and younger sister Melissa.
