"The people of Holmes and Wayne County rallied around our family 24 years ago to bring love, hope, encouragement and financial support to us," Allison wrote in an email. "We want them all to see how amazing Dylan has done and that we have put purpose to his journey."

The book tells the story of her son's "adventures" living with -- and overcoming -- a congenital heart defect (CHD). Meant to share encouragement, hope and faith, colorful illustrations, Scripture and ballad-style storytelling fill the pages of "Dylan the Great Heart Warrior."

He now lives Ypsilanti Michigan, and attends Eastern Michigan University.
