Cancer has come back for Buffalo boy, 3, family asks for prayers

What was supposed to be a happy new year for one local family has turned into a nightmare. Bentley Hayden, 3, of Buffalo, a little boy who many prayed for during his battle with cancer and beat it once, will have to endure chemotherapy once again as the cancer has relapsed in his skull. As can be imagined, his family is devastated that he has to go through this again.

“As tears pour down my cheeks, unfortunately we got terrible news today that Bentley has relapsed in his skull. We will start chemo Monday and rescan in three weeks. Please pray for my hero. I never thought I would sign another approval for chemotherapy again,” said Krystal Hayden, mom, in a post in the Bentley’s Battle Facebook group.

Sweet Buffalo has set up a GoFundMe account to help Bentley and his family with expenses at this difficult time. If you would like to make a donation, visit
