ETHAN & HIS FAMILY
Jessica and Dustin were married in 1999 and have lived in Kansas, Indiana, and the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Jessica is from Delaware and Dustin is from Michigan. They now live in Bel Air, MD and are excited to call this area their home.
Dustin is an 8th grade teacher in Baltimore City and Jessica is a Licensed Counselor and Registered Play Therapist. She is in private practice in Bel Air counseling children, individuals, couples and families.
Ethan is a tender hearted young man who loves to play ice hockey, read, go to the beach, and spend time with the men in his life. He's all boy and loves to do boy things...like hanging out with his friends and spending time with his Papa. Their daughter Reese is a sweet spirit who likes to wear dresses all the time, play ice hockey, go to the beach, dance and speak her mind! Reese adores her brother but will push all his buttons too! They fight hard but love each other a lot.
It was Jessica's desire to start a non-profit to help other parents connect and help their son and other kids get the research they deserve. There is virtually no funding, research, and little to no awareness for Arachnoid Cysts. Many doctors say there are no symptoms associated with this diagnosis. Ethan's doctor is wonderful and knows there are symptoms. Other parents they have spoken to will attest that there are many, many symptoms and as the cyst grows or shunts have been put in, kids continue to suffer. Someone needs to be a voice for children. They will stand up and be heard!
