Gone Too SoonOur darling Dylan passed away in 2020, after a 20-month battle with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DPIG), an incurable cancer that primarily affects young children. She captured the hearts of everyone at our school and within the peninsula communities. We admired her strength and positive attitude in her fight against this devastating illness. Dylan was a sweet, spunky child who loved unicorns, baking, music, family and friends, and the colors pink and purple. Dylan is loved by many and is truly missed.
