Give a little, live a lot
Help Dylan live a lot, simply by giving a little.
Hi everyone (:
My name is Dylan Bowman,
I'm 21 years old and have just been diagnosed with ependymoma(a rare incurable aggressive cancerous tumour of usually the spine, mine has grown in a unknown place of the brain where it wouldn't usually grow, in the right-parietal lobe) Quite literally shortening my life, due to the unknown growth location my neurologists/neurosurgeons they can't give me a definite on how long I have left.
Previous to this I was mountain biking, swimming and working full time as a chef when my left side gave up which had me sent to hospital.
I've had surgery and am about to start radiation treatment to prolong the worst outcome.
I'm living away from home, making the most of what I've got, and what I have to give.
I am looking at getting into a awareness group to promote mental health. And ultimately I'd love to return to what I love doing, in the kitchen cooking.
Use of funds
Funds that are raised go towards supporting my family an I through this hard time, treatments, travel costs and therapy

Hi everyone, as of 31st march this year it has been 1 year on since have a rare incurable non genetic aggressive cancerous tumour removed from my right parietal lobe of my brain.
My hair that was falling out due to radiation has almost all grown back to what it was before.
I am keeping positive and attending counselling to help that.
I have tried to work as i love being in the kitchen cooking but after trialing myself i still struggle with headaches, concentration, standing for long periods of time, noise, and strength.
I do want to return the kitchen and get back into work but right now i just cant handle it.
My photography has improved alot and is going well, i am still working on motivation speaking but most of all i am spending quality time with my family as much as i can.
thank you all for your loving support
