The friends and supporters of Dustin Walls are uniting to raise money who's losing his battle with a rare form of cancer.

Hey everyone! I am asking for any help you can give for my good friend, Dustin Walls who has been in his final stages of a rare form of cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma also known as Rhabdo and RMS. It is a very rare and aggressive for of cancer. This cancer is mainly found in childlren but can appear in teenagers. It is VERY rare to be found in adults over the age of 17, and when it is, it is very aggressive. Rhabdo in adults only accuses on average 70 cases a year.

Dustin, his wife, Kylee, and his adorable daughter Layla really need support right now. The medical expenses for this have run them in the ground and they are now making funeral arrangements they can barely afford for him. Any dollar helps, guys. Between the cost of medical bills, the cost of planning a funeral my friend deserves they way he would like to be remembered, and the cost of Kylee having to raise this precious daughter after losing him breaks my heart.

I would love to tell you guys about my friend Dustin. When I was in high school, Dustin was always there with a witty comment and support. His smile and laugh are like fluid in my mind. I never met a person in my life just as selfless and happy as this kid. We used to go see locals together and he just loved music. Our favorite bands we would talk about were The Huntingtons who were a local pop punk Ramones style band from our area. They were like our Gods when we were kids. I remember going to see them at Silverside Road church in Delaware with Dustin and he made Cliffy their front guy dedicate a song to me. A real pivotal moment in my high school show going activities. We would just enjoy music together all the time. We saw Green Day come to Delaware together and I couldnt have had a better time going with literally anyone else. He probably was the only person who enjoyed them as much as me at that time. There were times in my life I didn't always have a place to go and Dustin's family didn't have much but they always opened their doors for me and it meant so much.

We used to have these Jackass ripoff typed tapes we did back when. We all had super cool high school Jackass names. Dustin's was Scotty Vandal or Star Crunchie. He just always was hilarious and had a real sense of humor about himself.

It kills me knowing he's battling through this and won't be here soon so let's get together and do something for Layla and Kylee.
