He is a big brother to his biggest fan, 6 month old brother Levi. His two other favorite people are mommy and daddy (Kelli & Ike). Needless to say, this little man is loved beyond words.
March 2014 changed the lives of this family forever. During diaper duty, Kelli noticed a small knot and bruising on his lower spine. Something just didn't feel right, so she immediately loaded up Peyton and went straight the Arkansas Children's ER in Little Rock. After a short period and a few tests she heard 2 of the most devastating words imaginable. It's cancer.
Within the last 5 days, Peyton has been through the ringer. And then some. He has been put to sleep 4 days in a row for MRI's, bone marrow biopsy x2, bone scans, and even a Life-port placement so he can start chemotherapy ASAP. Pathology reports are pending, but chemo will start as soon as the exact cancer is determined! Peyton (as well as mom and dad) have had basically no sleep since hospitalization. Peyton has been awake all night and all day saying "I hurt" and shaking and being restless from the pain. Despite being on a morphine PCA pump, his pain is still so severe. What a tough little guy! He's the definition of a true rockstar!
So far tests have shown some small lung nodules and a vertebrae nodule. Kelli and Ike have been so strong for their angel baby through these darkest of times, never leaving his side at all. They have had to stop working for now so they can be there for Peyton in Little Rock, and they will be there for months at least since he will be starting the chemo.
Any donation whatsoever will be appreciated more than you will ever know. All money and proceeds will go directly to this wonderful family. I've known Kelli since college and she would give the shirt off her back and never ever think twice about it. She is devastated right now, and the last thing she needs to worry about is bills/gas money/etc. But first and foremost this family needs prayers. Please pray everyday for the cure. We know he will get through this, we just want his journey to be as painless as possible. God bless and remember, prayers, prayers, and more prayer!!!!!
