dustin1Dustin is an energetic, super smart 7 year old boy who loves and lives for car racing.  Dustin’s love for cars goes beyond imaginable, he loves high performance cars and likes to watch and play racing video games.
Dustin was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in September 2007 and has been in remission for 3 years.  We discovered Dustin’s illness one day when he started complaining about pain in his elbow, it was swollen and red, but originally it was thought to be a casualty of his activeness.  When the swelling did not subside and he started complaining about pain in other joints, we took him to the hospital to see a Rheumatologist, where he was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.
