Alumni Tournament Pictures

Both families pictured with the 2 teams playing for the championship.

The Shaw family

Keith Mecham, the basketball coach at Box Elder, gave Dylan this awesome Bee's basketball. Dylan was so cute and said, "once I get my balance back I'll be shooting a lot of hoops with this basketball."

During a break in games I took my girls, Sydnee and Madelyn, on a little date with Dawson and Dylan to Texas Roadhouse (Dylan's favorite restaurant). We all had so much fun and the conversation was nonstop. It made me smile! Grammy had taken Dylan to Texas Roadhouse for his birthday last year and I guess ate "A LOT" of the peanuts. He was convinced that he needed to bring some back to her and worried about it until we got her a bag. Just an example of how cute and thoughtful he is!

I am also so grateful for the incredible support and love that has been given! The definition of charity is the pure love of Christ. We have all felt of this love by numerous people; friends, family, neighbors, and even strangers.
Thank you is not a strong enough word for the gratitude that we feel!

    I was up in Brigham City for a funeral last week and saw your story in the News and Journal. I am so touched by you little boy and the amount of faith he has. What an inspiration. I just wanted you to know that Dylan and your cute family will be in our prayers.

  5. Ryan and Mandy,
    We found out about Dylan from a gal that used to be in your ward. You have a beautiful family and show such faith. We have been down a similar road - if you ever need to chat or if we can do anything for you please let us know. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Give Dylan big hugs from some fans in Eagle Mountain. ;)
    Love, The Huish's

  6. Where can I get one of the braclets to support Dylan?
