Dylan's follow up story aired in Australia

YAY, the follow up story on Dylan aired in Australia last night. You can watch the story online HERE story: Dylan fights to live another day.

I could not believe that the Health Minister said “It would be irresponsible for the commonwealth government to fund unproven therapies that could put their lives at risk” I think someone needs to explain to him that Dylan’s life was already at risk when doctor's in Australia said they couldn't do anymore for him. It is fact that Dylan would be dead now if he never came to America, again he is living proof that given a chance at life you can succeed, even if it is an “unproven” therapy that has been used for over 20 years!!! If the therapy put children’s lives at risk, then clinical trials using 3F8 monoclonal antibodies would have ceased long ago, infact 3F8 is much less toxic than chemotherapy, and chemotherapy certainly puts your life at a very high risk.

I want to also remind everybody about the Loneliest road campaign. Please support these 5 father's riding their bikes across America to raise funds for Hu3F8. Please donate to "The Loneliest Road" even a small donation will be making a huge difference to not only Dylan but many other children fighting this cancer.
