Dillon loves spending time with his family as much as he loves baseball, music and gourmet food. In 2005, Dillon was diagnosed with Niemann-Pick Type C, which is a rare, devastating and always fatal disease with only 500 cases world wide. 

The symptoms of this disease include enlarged spleen and liver, clumsiness and loss of muscle control, deterioration of speech, seizures, and progressive neurological and intellectual decline. Many children die before the age of 10, or within 5-10 years of the diagnosis. 

With your generosity the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation, Inc. can achieve the necessary funding for critical research in hope of a successful treatment in time to spare Dillon and other children from the devastating effects of this fatal disease that robs them of their most precious gift – life.
