A little over a year ago, the CrackBerry family was deeply saddened by the news that Keian, the son of one of our writers, Ryan Blundell, was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer called T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Six year old Keian has spent much of the last year in the hospital, receiving chemotherapy and undergoing test after test. Just a few short months ago Keian was able to receive a bone marrow transplant from his baby brother Joren. Just when it looked like Keian had beaten the cancer, the family received the terrible news that not only was the cancer back, it was worse than ever.
To say the Blundell family has been through a lot is an understatement. Not only is their son in a battle for his life, but they have had to give up their home, their jobs, and any sense of a normal life. Needless to say, the family is devastated, both emotionally, physically, and financially. Several of the local TV channels and newspapers have done interviews with the Blundells, helping to bring in donations to help the family with the mounting bills. On top of that, several people in their community have organized fundraisers to help contribute.
While we don't normally post things like this, Ryan is a member of the CrackBerry family, and we'd love to help out his son and family any way we can.
