Krystal Dinslage is Sammy’s Superheroes Foundation’s Executive Assistant but for her, it’s much more than just a job. Pediatric Cancer is near to her heart after her son, Matthew, was diagnosed with pre-leukemia in March of 2014. Matthew went through a year of extensive treatment and was very ill for many months. In August of 2016 he was released from all treatment and is an active, healthy, seven year old. Going through treatment and watching helplessly as her son fought for his life ignited a passion in Krystal to help others with their fight.
As Executive Assistant, Krystal takes care of the bookkeeping duties with Sammy’s Superheroes. Krystal lives in Columbus with her husband Matt and their two children, Matthew and Monica. Krystal is also an optician and works at her husband’s office, The Optometric Center of Columbus, part time. Krystal and her family are involved with their church, Godparents, Cub Scouts, and MOPS.
