At the young age of 15, Bryce Turner and his family had never expected the heart-breaking news that he was diagnosed with cancer.
Test results revealed on Feb. 1 that Turner has a rapidly growing cancer, more specifically known as childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). And unfortunately, the aggressive nature of this form of cancer has caused Turner to be hospitalized for the next couple of months for various treatments including chemotherapy.
Turner is a sophomore standout, a bright student, and a football and basketball star who is well-known for his warm smile and joyful personality.
To support Turner and his family with intensive medical costs, friends, family, and community members have showed overwhelming compassion on his gofundme page. Donations have raised more than $48,000.
For continual updates on Turner’s progress, you can check out, donate, and/or share his gofundme.com page, support his Instagram and Facebook page under “Battle for Bryce Turner.”
Turner’s family reported that he finished his first round of chemotherapy on Feb. 18. “He is doing well, and continues to enjoy visits from his family and friends! We would like thank everyone for your overwhelming support, and ask that you continue to keep Bryce and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he continues his battle,” the family wrote.
There’s no doubt that the community has come together in love and support of Turner’s battle against cancer.
