Meet Dylan After surviving a 17-foot fall from a second story bedroom window resulting in a stroke and left Dylan with a fractured skull, Dylan was flown to his local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital where an emergency craniectomy was performed.
Dylan's prognosis was dim: he had to survive 72 critical hours before doctors would discuss survival possibilities with his frightened family. Several exhausting days later, Dylan was brought out of his coma and showed promising signs of recovery. Additional brain surgery and physical therapy were required to get Dylan back on track. Upon returning to preschool, Dylan was temporarily restricted from the monkey bars, swings and the slide so children took turns playing with him in the sandbox.
Funds in Action Dylan is now a happy, thriving boy. Donations to CMN Hospitals helped support the pediatric physical therapists who helped Dylan, as well as the neurosurgery equipment and physical therapy programs used to help him recover.
