FOX 26 KRIV morning anchor and health reporter Melissa Wilson has announced her 6-year-old son Caleb has been diagnosed with leukemia.
Wilson posted a photo of her son on her personal Facebook page on Sept. 15 and has since received an outpouring of support from coworkers and fans. She posted the same news on her fan page a day later:
"Surreal is the only thing I can say. I've been honored to walk the halls of Tx Children's Hospital, bringing you stories of hope & triumph about children fighting disease the past 13 years. Thanks for everyone's support, now that my own precious son has been diagnosed with leukemia. He's resting comfortably now in recovery & his life-saving chemotherapy has begun. We picture him running & playing & laughing again. We picture him graduating from high school and college. We can picture him getting married and having children of his own. We will beat this disease."
Wilson has created an ongoing blog about her son's battle with cancer, titled "Caleb's Courage".
