6 Year old Roy is fighting cancer

Roy is seven years old and has been diagnosed with high risk stage 4 neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma is an aggressive cancer that doesnt show symptoms until it has already spread to other parts of the body. The cancer has matastasized into his bone marrow in his pelvis down both legs and in his left shoulder and arm. He has a 40-50% chance of survival. His treatment will be chemotherapy, bone marrow transplants, radiation, and immunotherapy. On October 23rd he underwent his first surgery and is immediately beginning chemotherapy at All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburgh, Florida.

"Our lives have been turned upside down. We are so heartbroken that our little boy has to go through this. We are believing in God for healing and a full recovery. Our faith in God is getting us through this incredibly hard time in our lives. Roy is a smart, loving, silly 1st grader. He is just the sweetest boy to everyone he meets and an amazing big brother to his 8 month old baby brother Sawyer. He loves swimming, fishing, playing board games with his family, and playing video games. His favorite superhero is Spiderman and likes watching and playing Pokemon. We have had tremendous help from friends, family, and people we don't know. We can not thank everyone enough for the support and care. Thank you!"  (Gretchen) 

His mother, Gretchen has left her job to care for Roy. His step dad, David is a Lakeland firefighter. This family needs a lot of help in many forms, including thoughts, prayers and financial.

Please consider giving to this family as their precious little boy is in a fight for his life.
