Dryden S.

At age 5, Dryden is described by her mother as someone who “used to have leukemia. Now she is a survivor.” Dryden was born on March 3, 2008, and obviously has been through far more than the typical child her age. But Dryden doesn’t spend a lot of time thinking about herself. “She is so loving, caring, and strong. Dryden loves to help others. She does all kinds of donation drives. But my favorite memory of her from this time is when she would go to her friend Leo’s room at the hospital and tell him not to be scared.”

Dryden’s family would like to thank Make-a-Wish Washington and Alaska, “who have been amazing.”
