Good Morning Angels: Dream come true for 14-year-old cancer warrior

GMA and Reach for A Dream brings hope, strength and courage to 14-year old Morris Mdlongwa.

GMA 14 year old cancer worrier

BACKGROUND:

Morris Mdlongwa loves drawing and painting and researching all sorts of art online. He enjoys going to school and learning, however, he is not able to attend much school these days.Morris is fighting AML - an aggressive form of blood cancer.

His dad, TK says Morris struggled with what they thought was another bout of tonsillitis. The medication was not effective and they took him to the doctor. The family was shocked when Morris was diagnosed with a life threatening AML-cancer.

Morris is responding well to his treatment at the Charlotte Maxeke State Hospital in Johannesburg, however, it's tiring and keeps him away from the people and the activities he loves.

Morris told, "Reach for a Dream" that he would love to spend the day doing art - painting and being creative. He would also love to have his own computer, as traveling to the library to do research has become a challenge.
