BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — A young Bakersfield boy is fighting cancer for a second time and his family is asking the community for its support.
17 News first told the story of 4-year-old Greyson Franklin in December at our Children’s Miracle Network Mediathon.
Greyson was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer when he was just 18 months old.
He underwent chemotherapy and and beat it, only to see the cancer return two months ago.
A fundraiser is planned to help Greyson’s family with medical and travel expenses to Los Angeles so he can undergo treatment again.
