The family would like to convey their sincere gratitude to The Jimmy Fund and the staff at Boston Children’s Hospital for the excellent care given to Dylan.

His mother wrote,

“Thank you for the whole radiology department for being absolutely amazing during the toughest times for us. I only met Whitney D’Ambrosio 1 year ago but feel like it’s been years! The circle of friends we were “forced” to meet because of this awful disease have been so incredible!”

On Sunday, March 26, from 2 to 5 p.m., relatives and friends are welcome to visit the TYNGSBOROUGH FUNERAL HOME at 4 Cassaway Dr. in Tyngsborough. On Monday, March 27, at 10 a.m., a funeral service will be held for him in the funeral home. Following, there will be a burial in Billerica’s Fox Hill Cemetery. The family asks memorial contributions in Dylan’s honour be made to Tommy’s Place-Falmouth, 26 Elm Arch Way, Falmouth, MA 02540, or the Dylan Cadotte Memorial Fund, C/O Metro Credit Union, 50 Summitt Rd., Burlington, MA 01803.

Tommy’s place, a non-profit organization which provides vacation homes for kids who are fighting cancer, wrote a tribute for Dylan on Facebook,

“It is with tremendous sadness that we bring you this heart wrenching news that our Tommy’s Place family member Dylan has passed.

This past Thanksgiving week in 2022 we had the honor of meeting and hosting Dylan and his entire family.

At the time, I was quietly told that Dylan only had several months left to live. Upon meeting Dylan on a Sunday afternoon for our initial tour I thought to myself that the person who told me this must have been mistaken…?

Dylan my friend, your Tommy’s Place Angels (Grifyn Sawyer, Danny Sheehan, Jonah Finn, Kiara Cutler, Emmy Parker, Dacian Brown, Sammy Hawkes, De’Moni Rose, Sean MacDonnell, Henry Charbonneau, Kendall Lord and Bella DuBois) are waiting for you now with open arms in a place where there is no more pain…”

Dylan’s Cancer battle:

Dylan got an unexpected diagnosis of osteosarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer on September 2021. He had 29 painful weeks of chemotherapy. He underwent multiple surgeries as well. His first major procedure, a rotationplasty on his right leg, was followed quickly by surgery on his lungs to remove numerous bilateral pulmonary nodules. As many of you are aware, his mother Sarah, a recent breast cancer survivor, tried to manage both his care and that of her other children. He had numerous nodules removed during his bilateral lung surgery at the beginning of the year, but because of his strength, he battled through the pain and recovered very well. Dylan was overjoyed to receive his new prosthetic in March.

Unfortunately Dylan Cadotte passed away after a long battle with osteosarcoma. The form of cancer that develops most frequently when it starts in the bones is osteosarcoma, also referred to as osteogenic sarcoma. Osteogenic sarcoma is another name for it. According to research, tumors include cancer cells that resemble the earliest stages of bone cells, which, in a healthy person, would ordinarily contribute to the formation of new bone tissue.


Who was Dylan Cadotte?

Son of the late Ryan Cadotte and Sarah (Morrill) Cadotte, Dylan Cadotte was born in Lowell on September 18, 2008. Dylan was in the eighth grade at Tyngsborough Middle School and had previously attended Varnum Brook Elementary and Nissitissit Middle School in Pepperell.

He was a beautiful and giving man, and everyone around him all the time could tell he liked and cared about them. He achieved it by always exhibiting kindness and friendliness towards everyone in his vicinity. His manner stood out for its tenderness and friendliness. He entered a room with such enthusiasm and optimism that it was as if the sky had been clear and the sun had been beaming there all along.

He has been the most courageous and generous person in his life, but he has also had a spark of cruelty. A significant number of people will never forget Dylan Cadotte’s motivational honesty and his laugh’s contagiousness and charming humour, and they will always remember it. Dylan Cadotte has a remarkable talent for changing people’s life for the better, and he made use of this talent to help others.

Whenever Dylan entered a room, his infectious smile would instantly brighten the atmosphere. He was frequently referred to as an “Old Soul” because of his intense curiosity and frequent queries. Dylan would make any situation fun and was ready for anything! He was a hockey enthusiast who had played with the Nashoba Grizzlies, Groton Crusaders, and New England Stars. He loved the Boston Bruins so much. He loved spending time outside, constructing Legos, riding his tiny red mustang before upgrading to a quad, and assisting anyone who needed help starting or finishing a project.

He is survived by his parents, Sarah Cadotte and Stephen Gerrior of Tyngsborough; his sister, Michelle Cadotte; his brothers, Stephen and Dante Gerrior; his grandparents, Michael and Linda Morrill of Hobe Sound, Florida (Billerica), Karen Renault Scalley and her husband James Scalley of Tewksbury; Richard Cadotte of Cambridge; and his aunts and uncles, Eric and Jami Morrill of Londonderry, Nicole Morrill of Dracut, Rachelle.
