RHOC: What does Slade Smiley’s Son, Grayson have, just the facts and the Amazing Gray Fund

While what’s wrong with Slade’s son was briefly mentioned in past seasons, this season is being obnoxiously vague about the whole thing…so here you go:

Born on May 16, 2000, Slade Smiley’s son is named Grayson Alexander Arroyo-Smiley…but he prefers to be called Gray :-).

Little Gray was diagnosed with Diffuse Fibrillary Astrocytoma in May of 2006.  For those of us who aren’t neuro-oncologists, that’s a brain tumor…only normally these tumors are benign and can be removed with surgery.

Sadly, Grayson’s tumor is a super rare sub-type (Progressive Low Grade Astrocytoma/Disseminated Neuroglial Tumor), is malignant and can’t be removed with surgery.

Little Grayson Alexander is just about one of the coolest kids in the world. No, I’m not just saying that to be nice, visit amazinggray.org to learn more!

Grayson’s mother, Michelle Arroyo, has set up a website with information, pictures and updates on little Gray’s progress as well as a foundation to accept donations towards medical costs, The Amazing Gray Fund.

I encourage you all to visit the website, which is also my source for all the information above: Click here to visit the Amazing Gray Fund

…however things might look on the show I don’t believe that anyone (myself included) wants anything but for this little boy to be well, grow up strong and live his dream of being a baker!!!
