Yamhill community rallying behind officer’s son battling leukemia

YAMHILL, OR (KPTV) -

The community of Yamhill is rallying behind a 5-year-old boy after he was diagnosed with leukemia. 

Brody Miller was diagnosed in November. His father, who is a reserve officer for the Yamhill Police Department, says the community support has been amazing.

The family attended a fundraiser Friday and say another one is already being planned. And while the Millers got some good news, the battle is far from over. 

"Actually, the bone marrow came back 100 percent leukemia-free, which means it's not in his bone marrow anymore," said A.J. Miller, Brody’s father. "However, what they're trying to do now is kill of all the leukemia DNA in his blood, which I guess is the hard part."

Brody's mother has started a GoFundMe page. She hopes to raise enough money to be able to stay home with Brody while he undergoes treatment.
