About Skylor:

On February 23, 2014, Skylor Burgos, now a senior at Olentangy High School, was taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital after suffering from severe headaches and double vision.  Four days later, doctors diagnosed him Grade 3 Anaplastic Astrocytoma, an inoperable form of brain cancer.  Undeterred, Skylor spent the beginning of his journey in and out of radiation treatments, chemotherapy appointments and visits to the hospital.  He never lost hope and he never lost his smile.  Unwilling to let his cancer change his fun-loving attitude, Skylor began referring to his tumor as “Tommie.”  The nickname quickly caught on with family and friends; this 5K race is dedicated to the eviction of Tommie, as the doctors cannot do so alone.

Despite his diagnosis, Skylor continued on with his life as “normal.”  He was a member of the Olentangy High School Marching Band and still continues to be an active member of the AFJROTC and enjoys doing community service in Delaware County as part of the program.  Skylor has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and has spent his past 2 spring break vacations helping out in Tennessee and South Carolina.  He truly has a passion for helping people out in any way he can.

In February 2016, a routine MRI showed a second tumor, located in the same area as the first.  Although radiation was already given, his team of doctors put Skylor on a more aggressive form of chemotherapy.  They continue to monitor him with routine MRI’s and lab work.  Despite this new information, Skylor has stayed strong and is a positive role model to friends, families and even strangers.  He plans to attend college in the fall, majoring in Creative Writing with hopes of publishing his story to encourage other children and teenagers to never give up hope.

 About Dot’s Tots Foundation:

Since Ashley Warnock began her career in social work, she has been involved in serving the needs of local youth. However, upon the birth of her first son in October, 2011, Ashley “retired” from the workforce to be a homemaker.  While caring for her son, Ashley had a yearning to work with children again. This fueled a conversation between she and her husband, Andy.  Interestingly enough, Andy had investigated the formation of a charity to support needy families years earlier.  The culmination of their joint vision was the establishment of Dot’s Tots in the Summer of 2012.  The name of the Foundation is in honor of Andy’s late grandmother, Dorotha Warnock. Dorotha was a lifelong educator and constant provider of guidance, support, and love to all of her students and especially her grandchildren. This Foundation carries her legacy forward.
