In the game of life, Dylan Full has had few calls go against him.
But now he's got some teammates helping him turn the tide.
Full, an 8-year-old boy from Wheaton, is getting a big assist from the St. Viator boys lacrosse team. The Lions symbolically made Full a team member on Friday at Forest View Education Center, where the Lions were in action against Marian Catholic.
Two years ago, Full was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a malignant brain tumor.
A tough treatment regimen that included six weeks of daily radiation treatments to his brain and spine, followed by nine more in-patient cycles of radiation, are over. Full is doing well but continues to face post-cancer challenges. But he'll have plenty of support moving forward.
In addition to gaining a new batch of rugged friends from St. Viator, Full also took ownership of a few objects that may come in handy for him in his fight -- a helmet, lacrosse stick and Lions team jersey.
