SPOKANE, Wash. -Trevyn Nay was diagnosed with epstein barr virus when he was four years old. With expenses piling up, his family and friends decided to raise money and help pay for his treatments. They held a donations car wash. Annie Brooks has been a friend of Trevyn's mother for years and has watched his disease progress.
"It's taken a really aggressive form. He's been getting a lumbar puncture and bone marrow transplant," Brooks said.
The eight-year-old has been back in the hospital since November. His family friend, Deloris Kimberling, says she is amazed how fearless he's been through this whole journey.
"He's a very positive little boy, he's ready to kick it and get going," Kimberling said.
Kimberling told KHQ that Trevyn is at the Children's Hospital in Seattle, but they want him to feel the love all the way from Spokane.
"They're not down there by themselves, everyone here does support them and we're all willing to show that we're here to support them," Kimberling said.
Brooks says she was blown away by the kindess of her community.
"It almost makes me want to cry.. the donations have been incredibly generous. we've almost raised $200 and it's the first hour," Brooks said.
