Dylan Rieder Facts

  1. He had started skating from the age of 9 and had turned pro in 2006, at the age of 18.
  2. In his fight with leukemia, after being diagnosed for the first time in July 2014, he had received a bone marrow transplant from his sister Makenna twice. Although he made recoveries each time, he also went into remission after those recoveries before eventually succumbing to the illness in October 2016.
  3. It was later revealed that more than leukemia, his sudden demise was caused by a lung infection that had damaged his spine. His health had also deteriorated due to side-effects of chemotherapy that had damaged his eyes and liver.
