“I’d like you to meet Ford Theodore Miller Murphy. Today is a big day in his and our family’s lives,” Murphy wrote under a picture of a his now four-year-old son riding a horse.
“Two years ago, this sweet little innocent boy with a deep belly laugh and an obsession with Monster Trucks was diagnosed with neuroblastoma…an often fatal pediatric cancer. Ford’s cancer — an abdominal tumor the size of a tennis ball — was found during a normal check up by his brilliant pediatrician Dr. Lauren Crosby @drlaurencrosby,” Murphy went on to explain. “From there, Ford has undergone a huge surgery and several difficult procedures.”
Murphy, who in February signed a $300 million deal with Netflix, said he is “donating a wing in tribute to Ford and our family is making a gift of $10 million so that other children can experience the love and care of this exceptional facility… we are so honored and lucky to contribute, and encourage everybody who can to do the same.”
