Real Housewives of Orange County Star Slade Smiley’s young son Grayson, 12 years-old, is back in the hospital battling cancer. His mom Michelle Arroyo is giving RadarOnline an update about how her son is doing.Â â€œHe is fighting hard,â€ Michelle said about Grayson,Â who was diagnosed with aÂ rare brain tumor in 2005,Â and has been bravely dealing with his frightening medical condition since then.
â€œGrayson is a good little solider,â€ his mom told RadarOnline, while adding he has been in the hospital for the past three days at Sloan KetteringÂ in New York.Â The Talbert Family FoundationÂ has set up a website to help raise money for Grayson and have pledged that 100% of the proceeds will be donated â€œto help defray some of the catastrophic costs associated with his cancer.â€ Michelle expresses her gratitude for the foundation,Â â€œThe Amazing Gray Fund is so thankful that the Talbert Family Foundation is helping us out. This is a great resource for people with a medical crisis.â€
Michelle is hopeful that Grayson’s treatment will be successful, and she admires his strength.Â â€œGrayson is a warrior,â€ his mom said.
This breaks my heart. My prayers and thoughts go out to Grayson, Michelle, Slade & Gretchen. As some of you know, I’m a cancer survivor myself, and I can’t imagine going through something so awful and horrendous at such a young age. What a strong little boy!
