Age 7

Dakota is a spunky 7-year-old  boy from Pennsylvania who is currently battling ATRT. On Wednesday, September 13th, 2023, Dakota's life was turned upside down. After experiencing frequent headaches, vomiting, and sleepiness, Dakota was taken to the ER, where an MRI showed a large mass the size of a tennis ball on his brain. Dakota is thankful for his surgeon and the incredible care he has received from his team at Penn State Health Children's Hospital located in Hershey, PA. His team has been on their feet, making sure Dakota receives the very best treatment! By the time you're reading this, Dakota will have received his second Craniotomy, we have faith that his tumor will be completely removed! Dakota's fight is far from over. After surgery, he will be doing more rounds of chemotherapy and will be receiving multiple bone marrow transplants along with radiation.

Dakota is a typical boy. He loves puppies, four wheelers, and superheroes. He is excited for his future Make-A-Wish trip to Disney. Dakota is thankful for his army of prayer warriors and supporters who have been behind him this whole time.
