Dash was diagnosed with Severe Congenital Neutropenia when he was 6 months old. Soon after he started the only recommended treatment, Neupogen injections, his parents were devastated to find out that his body was not responding. Without neutrophils, Dash was at very high risk for infection and more serious complications. After meeting with numerous Bone Marrow Transplant teams across the US, Dash's parents made the difficult decision for Dash to undergo a bone marrow transplant in January 2013, 6 months after diagnosis and just after his first birthday. A Bone Marrow Transplant carries with it a very high risk for complications and is currently the only known "cure". Dash received bone marrow and cord blood from his older brother, Declan, and is doing well today. The road to recovery after Bone Marrow Transplant is a long and difficult one. Dash's family is dedicated to support other families dealing with Neutropenia by raising funds for the Ella Jewell Foundation so that research can be done to provide other treatment options and someday, a cure.
