Gray was absolutely fine and healthy at the time of birth. Nevertheless, he contacted with acute brain cancer at the very young age of four. Sadly, things kind of took a turbulent turn when he was in kindergarten. Gray’s vision deteriorated suddenly.

In May 2006, Baby Gray’s health got worse day by day; he began to sleep talk and frequently vomited when he was fed. His mom Michelle thought her son might have stomach flu. Thus, she decided to take him to the hospital so that Grayson could feel better.

When Michelle took him to the doctor, they immediately decided to take a CT scan and found a mass in his brain. It was reported that Grayson had a massive tumor growing inside his head at age six.

Grayson Smiley’s tumor could not be surgically removed. So the doctors decided to go for chemotherapy. Even at age 20, Gray is still battling in and out of hospitals. In addition to that, Grayson’s mother has a current gofundme page to help with some of the medical expenses which blow her mind. Michelle Arroyo has a gofundme page for only $25,000 and it’s only at $7,000.

Michelle is left having to beg for $25,000 when we have these semi celebs who could probably get that funded in less than a few hours. This is because, Mr. Slade, the father of Grayson has refused to pay child support for his son. Grayson’s insurance barely covers the minimum. It has been reported, Slade owed $138,850 in unpaid child support.
