Dylan’s mother and DT38 Foundation Founder, Tracylee Tombides, spoke of her delight: “The tribute match means a lot to the foundation and to Taylor, Jim and I personally.  

“It raises awareness about Dylan’s story and the need for self-awareness and early detection.  It encourages our young men to take their health seriously." 

The President of Perth Soccer Club, Gary Marocchi, described his pride at being able to raise awareness for the DT38 Foundation.  

“Perth SC is honoured to be involved in the annual tribute match with Stirling Lions FC on Sunday 7 May to pay tribute to the life of Dylan.
