Slade Smiley’s Son Grayson Continues to Fight Terminal Cancer
Things aren’t going so well for Slade Smiley’s son, Grayson.
The former Real Housewives of Orange County star is rumored to have been spending time with his 16-year-old throughout a rough stage of his cancer battle.
“Slade was at Children’s Hospital in L.A. last week with Gray and Gray’s mom, Michelle [Arroyo],” an insider told RadarOnline.com.
Grayson was diagnosed with cancer seven years ago after doctors found a brain tumor — specifically a diffuse fibrillary astrocytoma — that cannot be removed via surgery.
“Grayson’s illness is terminal and he has to undergo more operations,” the insider continued. “But he is a strong boy and will continue to fight.”
The 42-year-old — who is currently engaged to Gretchen Rossi and has another son named Gavin — has previously been called a “deadbeat dad” but if he’s sticking by his boy’s side, that once again proves he isn’t.
We haven’t heard anything from the teen’s Facebook page, titled “Amazing Gray,” since May 25.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Grayson and his whole family.
