The statement read:

A long overdue update on Sunny. We are taking one day at a time and celebrating each little triumph. Sunny is a warrior and fighting every day to get better and stronger.

It’s going to be a marathon not a sprint but we work every day to make sure he is surrounded with love, laughter and ohana.
