Dmitri Phelps

Born: April 5, 2000
Diagnosed: October 4, 2016
Died: January 20, 2018

– Smart – Curious – Funny – Balanced and Fair –

Mom, Olga, remembers Dmitri as someone who “loved international politics and we would always have discussions/ debates of world political events. He would win every time. Dmitri was fluent in four languages, got admitted to Sorbonne in Paris and wanted to work for the United Nations.

“He got a perfect SAT score 7 months into his diagnosis and going through chemo. He was on his high school basketball team and loved to play with his younger brother Sasha, his best friend. He had an amazing, dry sense of humor that all his friends loved.”

Mom (Olga), Dad (Vincent), and brother, Sasha, want others to know Dmitri’s story because “children are silently dying and the world doesn’t know it/ refuses to see it. Family, friends and the immediate communities are always supportive and wonderful, but it doesn’t extend to politicians and those in power to make cure a priority.”
