Ryan Murphy may be known for creating some of the biggest shows currently on television, but his fans did not know that in the last two years his personal life has been wrapped in pain and anguish. In a moving Instagram message published on Monday, Ryan Murphy revealed that his son Ford was diagnosed with cancer in 2016, known as neuroblastoma. An abdominal tumor was found during a routine checkup, and immediately changed Murphy's life backwards.
Fortunately, Ford, who was only two years old at the time of diagnosis, is much better and recently celebrated his fourth birthday. And although it took several medical procedures to get Ford to where it is now, Murphy is so grateful for the excellent treatment that Children & # 39; s Los Angeles Hospital gave her younger son who decided to donate $ 10 million to them as a sample. Thank you.
"I'd like you to meet Ford Theodore Miller Murphy," Murphy subtitled his Instagram photo of Ford, who looks happily riding a horse. "Today is a great day in the life of him and our family." Two years ago, this sweet and innocent child with a deep laugh and an obsession with Monster Trucks was diagnosed with a neuroblastoma … a pediatric cancer often fatal Ford's cancer, an abdominal tumor the size of a tennis ball: it was found during a normal check-up by his brilliant pediatrician, Dr. Lauren Crosby @drlaurencrosby.

This is not the first time Murphy has opened up personal information about his son's well-being. In the winter of 2018, the press tour of the Television Critics Association in January, the American horror story The creator opened at a time when Ford almost died when he was a baby after he stopped breathing in the middle of the night due to a genetic tracheal blockage in his throat. "We called 911. Obviously we were in panic and we were doing CPR and they showed up at 2 in the morning," recalled Murphy during the 9-1-1 panel, as reported by People. "There were four people who responded, they were incredibly calm and careful, they forced me to leave the room and they gave him back his life."
In fact, it was this experience that led Murphy to create the hit Fox series. 9-1-1 First, it focuses on the lives and cases of emergency services. "If they had not shown up, I think my son would have died," Murphy added.
Suffice it to say that Ford has proven to be a survivor in more ways than one. We hope that your days of hospital visits and surgeries have come to an end, so you can enjoy being a child. He is more than cattle.
