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. “He is fighting hard,” Michelle said about Grayson, who was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor in 2005, and has been bravely dealing with his frightening medical condition since then.
“Grayson is a good little solider,” his mom told RadarOnline, while adding he has been in the hospital for the past three days at Sloan Kettering in New York. The Talbert Family Foundation has set up a website to help raise money for Grayson and have pledged that 100% of the proceeds will be donated “to help defray some of the catastrophic costs associated with his cancer.” Michelle expresses her gratitude for the foundation, “The 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.”
Michelle is hopeful that Grayson’s treatment will be successful, and she admires his strength. “Grayson is a warrior,” 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!
