My Story

Grayson (also known as Gray, Gray Jay, or Baby Gray) is a happy 4 year old boy. He is the youngest of three kids in our family. His sister is named Lily and his brother's name is Nolan. Mom is Angela and Dad is named Ryan. Grayson also has a HUGE family of aunties, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and friends that are basically family. We are so blessed. If you don't know Grayson, he is a sweet baby who loves to give kisses and hugs. He sneak attacks kisses and will kiss pretty much everything; people, milk, pictures of puppies, pictures of babies on diaper cases, etc. And will just randomly hug you, wrapping those adorable chubby baby arms around your neck. Such a LOVER. He is full of life. :) Grayson is a typical little boy who loves to play sports, jump on couches, be loud, make silly faces, imitate his big brother, and pretty much get into everything he is not supposed to. Having two older siblings, he is a tough cookie...which we are so grateful for. Grayson had a rare tumor called Wilm's tumor. It is a malignant tumor that grows on the kidneys. This tumor was on his left kidney, which required him to lose that kidney and start chemotherapy. Our family is confident that he will beat this. We are taking it day by day, hour by hour, and getting him through each phase of treatment. We know that we have faith, love, and ALOT of people in our corner praying hard for our strong boy. We love you Gray Jay and we know you are going to beat this!!! #PrayforGray
