Dalton was diagnosed with severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) as a baby at 11 months. At the time of diagnosis, the doctors were amazed Dalton made it eleven months with no life-threatening illnesses. His parents call him their miracle baby. Dalton had an Allogeneic bone marrow transplant on December 13, 2013. Although he went through some complications post-transplant and spent some time in the PICU, today Dalton is doing well. His parents are even thankful for his first play-inflicted “ouchie” because it is just another sign that he is a wild, crazy, rough-and-tumble toddler - just like any NORMAL toddler. To help Dalton and his family afford the continued medical expenses associated with his bone marrow transplant they set up a CareLines Fund.
