Roland's Battle

Raised by 241 people in 32 months

My name is Myra Gregory and I am the mother of three handsome, smart young men. I have started this fund to help my son Roland. Roland is 9 years old and is very creative, energetic, artistic, and simply beautiful.

On Friday May 13, 2016, our lives changed for dramatically. Roland has been diagnosed with an extremely rare form of lung cancer, undifferentiated carcinoma. Since then, he has underwent a biopsy and open chest surgery, where they removed part of the tumor thats covering his entire left lung. We start chemotherapy today, June 14, 2016.  The doctors say they will be injecting him with the chemo meds for 24 hours b/c his cancer is malignant, meaning its growing fast. We recently had a PET scan done which confirmed that the cancer has spread to his left clavical lymphnode and to the lining of his lungs. 

Throughout this horrible ordeal Roland has remained positive and in good spirits. Your donation and spreading of the word means alot to me, bc this is my son, my firstborn son. All donations will be used for medication, hospital bills, toys, and games, whatever he is wanting. We want to keep Roland happy and comfortable, and he deserves that. He's a great big brother and awesome son, so let's show Roland our support!! Thank You in Advance and God Bless!!!

To everyone that has been following Roland's journey, thank you for all the support and help and prayers. Also we were able to reach our initial goal of $10,000 WOW
Roland is on hospice now. Has been on hospice since Dec 26, 2017.
My son has become paralysed from the waist down due to his tumor growing and attaching to his spine. His condition is worsening and he is bed ridden.
But he says he wants everyone to smile when they think of him. And to remember him as healthy and happy.
We are still collecting donations to help w memorial expenses. thank you all!!!!

This week hasn't been easy for us. Roland has been in constant pain, he has lost more weight and two days this week he didn't eat anything.
We are asking for your help to make him comfortable and happy. And for medications and scans that are no longer covered by his insurance.
Thank you and God bless
