Dylan Dusek was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia as a child
OMAHA, Neb. — As Dylan Dusek walked across the stage during pre-school graduation, one of his teachers called out, “Dylan Dusek, baseball player for the Houston Astros.”
That’s what Dylan wanted more than anything — to be like his idol, Astros All-Star second baseman Craig Biggio.
But as he crossed that stage, a day that was full of hope, Dylan was fighting for his life.
He was 5 years old and in the second year of treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
