What started out as bringing their four-year-old son, Slater, to the ER for leg pain, quickly turned into his parent's worst fear, a Stage 4 Neuroblastoma Cancer diagnosis. In less than 48 hours of his diagnosis, the Bushman Family was relocated to St. Jude Children's Hospital to begin immediate treatment. Due to Slater's age and this form of cancer, he is considered high risk. Treatment is expected to last approximately 18 months or longer. Slater's parents had no time to prepare for such an unexpected ordeal and their primary focus is solely on the wellbeing of Slater and his six-year-old brother, Sawyer.
This GoFundMe account has been set-up to assist the family with the mounting medical costs, tutoring for both children and the loss of income since they have had to completely leave their life and relocate to another state to obtain the best care they could for their son. No contribution is too small. If you are unable to contribute financially, please leave inspiring words and well wishes to show you're support for this beautiful family. Overall, nothing is greater than the power of prayer so please include the Bushman family in yours.
