CONWAY, Ark. — Conway Wampus Cat Brady Robnett was a baseball star on the diamond until life threw him a curveball. On Christmas Eve 2020, the 16-year-old was diagnosed with AML, a form of leukemia.
“Brady was healthy. He was practicing baseball three times a week, lifting weights, and was the heaviest he’s been in his life, and the healthiest he’s been in his life,” Brady’s mother, Rhonda, said.
She was shocked by the diagnosis.
“I was in denial,” she explained. “We were doing more labs, saying ‘this can’t be it because he’s healthy.’ Once we got the final diagnosis, I didn’t know what to feel. I was scared and we were all scared.”
Brady began chemo treatments for AML, then in February, he received more tough news.
