BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- A few months ago we brought you the story of Camden Bryant and his battle with leukemia. The little hero continues his treatment and he is not giving up.
Camden's father Dan Bryant said, "In the beginning we thought the worst,but as time progressed and he went into remission we realized he's got a really good prognosis and he can easily beat this."
While many little boys play in their rooms, the Bryant's have made a temporary home at Eastern Maine Medical Center. Camden has entered his third phase of treatment. He will spend four nights every two weeks in the hospital and receive chemotherapy for 24 hours at a time.
Camden's mother Sheri Bryant said, "He knows what he has to do and he just does it...H
e amazes us and he's the one that gives us strength."
Camden's spunky attitude and contagious smile helps the entire family have strength. The battle, however, is not over. The cancer's remission will not put an end to his treatment which will last another three years.
Dan Bryant said, "You expect that he's going to have ups and he's going to have downs and so are we as a family, but as long as we support each other and give it our best, we will get through it."
His wife agreed, "Even though it's hard we are making it and how lucky are we?"
Camden will be released from the hospital later this week. The Ellsworth Elks club will be holding a spaghetti dinner to support the Bryant family Saturday, November 17th. Information about the dinner can be found on the group's Facebook page.
