I am  raising money to help the Miller family during this very difficult time. They are fighting the unimaginable right now, and need not only all of the prayers they can get, but also there is a financial need that grows every day.

The family traveled to Utah to celebrate Christmas with extended family. On December 22, 2018 Perryn (8 years old)  was taken to the hospital with a bad headache. It was determined that he had a brain tumor. One day later he had a 7 hour surgery to remove the tumor.

Although they were able to remove the tumor, he still has a long road ahead of him to include several months of radiation and chemotherapy either in Utah or  at Duke Hospital. The particular type of cancer that Perryn has is called Glioblastoma, level  4. It is a very aggressive disease in children.

The family remains in Utah at this time. They are living at the hospital currently, and have no definite date they will be able to travel back to NC.  They are still undecided on staying in Utah for treatment or coming back to NC. If they do come back they will go directly to Duke for his treatment. .

This family has already been through so much this year. They lost their home during Hurricane Florence. They have not been able to return to their home, and have been staying with family. There is still no definite date they will be able to move home.

As you can imagine, the costs are starting to add up. They still have to come up with travel expenses to get home. Not to mention, their portion of the medical bills.

Perryn's Dad, Jake, is a veteran Marine Raider currently retired on disability and working on his MBA from George Washington University. His mother, Jaimee is a Special Needs Registrar with K12, Obviously both parents are going to be on extended leave from their jobs while they take care of Perryn. Neither one will have enough leave to cover them during this difficult time.

Any amount that you can donate will help this family. Their sweet boy, Perryn is fighting for his life. He is a smart boy with an amazing personality. He is loved by everyone. He is also a warrior and is putting up the good fight. Even during all of this time in the hospital, he has been more worried about his family than himself.

Please consider helping this sweet family while they go through this difficult time. If you cannot donate financially, please pray for all of them.

Perryn is so happy to be home. He is especially happy to be with his “boys.” Home definitely helps with healing. Although this sweet boy is home and able to play with his friends (finally), his fight is not over. He will continue to fight like the warrior he is! Please continue to pray, and please continue to share. #perrynstrong
