MILFORD – Family and friends of Elliot Slusser have organized a gofundme page to help offset costs associated with his battle with cancer.
The three-year-old is at Riley’s Hospital for Children in Indianapolis and being treated for Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
According to Amy Freel, who established the page, Elliot is “a beautiful child with a light that shines from inside his heart.”
He was diagnosed with AML in April. Since then, his mom has been with him at Riley’s Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.
He’s had one surgery and is undergoing chemo.
Elliott’s mother, Ryann Clay, gave birth to a baby girl in February and has been trying to take care of Elliot and the new baby while staying in a hospital room more than two hours away from home.
She is currently on a waiting list for the Ronald McDonald House.
On the web page, Freel wrote: This request for help has been initiated, for the most part, because so many kind souls have reached out to ask if there is anything that they can do. Send positive vibes our way, as all we really want is for Elliot to come home to play with his cousins, cook with his Mimi, and hunt for dinosaurs in the yard like he used to.
