3-Year-Old Cancer Survivor Receives The Surprise Of Her Life Thanks To Community Support
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) – At first glance, Brycen Ferguson looks like a normal 3-year-old.
He loves trucks, bikes and playing with his two sisters. However, there is much more to this child’s story than meets the eye.
“It was a very moving trip. No one wants to hear their child has cancer, but he’s been such a soldier,” said Donna Ferguson, Brycen’s mother.
In April 2021, Brycen was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
“The big boy doesn’t complain. He just does what he has to do,” Ferguson said.
The folks at Dreams Come True and the Louisiana Trooper’s Association heard about Brycen’s story and decided to grant him a special wish.
Brycen was surprised with a 15-foot playset, dozens of toys and a brand new F-150 motorized truck.
“It means everything,” Ferguson said. “Every time his account starts coming back and he starts feeling better, it’s the best thing in the world to see him run, ride his bike, do whatever kids would do.”
Brycen’s battle with cancer is far from over, but his spirit is what inspired everyone around him on Wednesday, March 2.
“When you see Brycen’s smile, you keep going,” Dreams Come True of Louisiana’s Becky Prejean said.
A champion in every sense of the word.
“I just get attached. Who couldn’t? Look at it! That’s what keeps me going,” Prejean said.
Dreams Come True has its 33rd annual golf tournament scheduled for Monday, March 31. The organization is always looking for teams.
